My Story

I commit to Jesus, I commit to His followers, I commit to His world.

At my church, this is our motto/mantra/mission statement. I was recently given the opportunity to share part of my story with my church family to reflect my personal commitment and the joy God has given me in my journey.

He is good, and He does good. This is my story.

What a great story of faith. I do not think you realize how inspiring you are.
I read this the other day and it made me think of you. I wanted to share it with you.

Corinthians 10:13
I always thought this verse was God will not give us more than we can bear-
but actually it says tempted more than we can bear.

It does not imply that God won't let you be stressed beyond what you can bear, or challenged beyond your ability, or pushed beyond your threshold. In reality God gives you more than you can bear all the time. On purpose.
It's only when you can't bear the load that the strength of Christ kicks in... and HE becomes everything you need and more. That really struck me. I am always thinking about you and lifting you up in prayer. God bless you!

Oh Allyson, you make my heart swell with love and pride that you my friend have demonstrated such faith in our God. You rock Mrs. Hendrickson!
