This week in a grocery store, I overheard someone say to another “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” This reminded of a Facebook Post I wrote February 11, 2017. After writing this, I had some very in depth conversations with others. Funny how I thought at the time we had a huge local support system. We did, but we realized it wasn’t big enough, one of the main reasons we moved 17 months after writing the below to be near family and friends.
“A huge “Thank You” to Andrea Nuss. Andrea had the below bracelets made for Team Mighty Malix.
Since wearing mine, I have had time to reflect on what this bracelet means to me. At first I saw it as support for Malix. But it’s so much more than that.
There is a saying that goes something like this: “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” This bracelet symbolized that many times God does give you more than YOU can handle. In times like this is when you need a support system. To me this bracelet symbolizes that God gave us more than we can handle. That is why we needed team Mighty Malix. This bracelet symbolizes that a 3 month old going into heart surgery needs prayers, thoughts, support! It symbolizes that many people around the world are going through things they themselves can not handle. We need each other, just like Malix needed and continues to need you.
I encourage you, next time you see or hear of someone dealing with an issue, let them know you are on their team and they don’t have to deal with it by their self! Don’t tell them “God didn’t give you more than you can handle” This is telling them they need to be able to handle it all themselves. Tell them you are on their team and that is what God, friends and family are for. We are here to pray and support for each other. ”
