"Her name is Diane Jones. Today her presence is calm and warm. I knew her as a quiet, terrified child struggling to grow up, nay, even to stay alive in a large violent matriarchal family. There was no father figure, only a sequence of men. Diane was thirteen years old when I first met her. Through a program in the California Department of Social Services, I had been assigned to be Big Sister to a younger sister of Diane. This younger sister was also badly abused both in maternal violence and in sexual abuse, as was Diane, but to a much lesser degree. I thought of Diane's mother as a raging bull with massive mood swings from manipulative and charming to a cruel, mean and evil woman. I myself was afraid of her. If I had known what was really going on during the years I worked with the family, I would not have had the power to do anything about it. My only hope and motivation at that time was to give them a view of what life was like from a different perspective and thus help them be kinder to their children. I am always appalled by the fact that Social Services felt it was best to keep children connected to their families no matter how monstrous the evil in the home. Twenty-six years later, we are all wiser." –MELANIE TAYLOR

How many times have you been in a real life situation and had someone tell you, “God will not put more on you than you can handle”? These are not just words; this is a promise that is in God’s Word—a promise from the creator of the entire universe, a promise from God who sent His Son to die for our sins so that we could have a real relationship with Him, a faithful and merciful Father who will not give us more than we can endure. Only through faith, fasting, and the love of God can we endure life altering events such as sicknesses of both parents. Also holding them as God reaches down to bring your Momma to Heaven and then two weeks later holding your Daddy as again God reaches down and brings him home to Him and Momma. Parents dying in the arms of their daughter can only be endured by faith…and that is God’s awesome mercy and amazing grace. And in that is the promise of God saying “You can handle this.” Author Cindy Nelson Smith lived these words as she and her family watched her parents go through the sicknesses and various trials and pain and broken hearts that life can bring. Only a loving and merciful Father can bring you through these and all things in life. It is a promise that He will not let us go through anything without Him and His helper, the Holy Spirit, as well as the sacrifice and ever-present love of His Son, Jesus. It’s a promise that will not change and will last forever through in any situation. Life is not easy; Jesus even told us that. Even so, we are not alone, ever. We have to trust in the promises of God. He will help us, love us, and guide us; He will not give us more than we can endure. God doesn’t break His promises, and that’s a promise too.
