Unbearable Times - 1 Cor. 10:13

1 Corinthians 10:13 13 No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
In other words, there is no uncommon temptation that you alone will be required to endure. There obviously are degrees of temptation if God will not let you be tempted beyond what you are capable of enduring.

When you are tempted to do things that aren't right, God always provides a way out, so you can endure that temptation.

You are required to endure (i.e. go through) whatever situation, not get some magic way out, because you are more than capable of escaping. Now I wish I could take this advice to mind and stop being so upset about how life is.
