Too Much to Bear?

Have you ever gone through something awful, truly awful, and had a few well-intentioned people, in an honest attempt to comfort or encourage, say something like "God won't give you more than you can bear", or "all things work together for good"? Have you maybe said those things yourself, to someone experiencing significant suffering? I know I have, on both counts. Sarah's experience with her newborn daughter's heart disease has made her a magnet for phrases like these. Her response is instructive and heartfelt, and very much worth the read.
