Too Hard

I once taught a little guy in reading and math groups, who often spent the first two minutes of any test moaning, "This is to-oo-oo ha-a-ard!!" When he finally got started, he usually scored 100%.

Sometimes when I am going through a "test", I sit down to pray, but instead, find myself whining to the Lord: "This problem is impossible!"

Does God ever answer: "Ooops, I never saw this coming!"

He is all-knowing God, and our loving Father A friend of mine likes to say, "All of our trials are OPEN BOOK TESTS!

I love this post, Karen. I love the way you spelled out "too hard" - I can just hear the child saying that!!! I pray you have a very enjoyable and peaceful weekend. Love you.

Oh, that was good!!! Yes, we often think our problems are "too hard" for even God to figure out...but He is faithful, and never lets us down. And we may not always score 100% on the test, but we usually always learn something very valuable in the test. Thank you for this today. I can relate to this so much.

I was that boy with the whining about school lessons being to hard. school was not my thing and still is not. I had lots of practice dealing with trials, but I have to say most of mine were created by my poor choices I made

I have been around kids like that, too, Karen.
Nothing is too hard for the Lord though---thank goodness! xo Diana

God uses tests to prove His Word true, no matter how long it takes it is better to trust in Him - especially if He has already proved His Word true in your life.

Maybe I need to study harder for the test.

How special that you used to teach, Karen. I bet you have all kinds of stories to tell through the years of teaching.
