Jennifer "JLo," "Jenny from the Block" Lopez told InStyle magazine she finds words from 1 Cor. 10:13 to be a great help now that she and her Latin singer husband have split.
"I live by the mantra that God doesn't give you anything you can't handle," Lopez responded when asked about her 2011 divorce from Marc Anthony. The couple has two children together - 4-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Lopez told the magazine that her family is quite religious and that her first piece of jewelry was a cross given to her at her first communion.
1 Cor. 10:13 says "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able."
Lopez explains it this way to InStyle- "It's not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow. And then you realize that those difficult moments, the times when you feel pain, are when you do a lot of your growing. You realize: there's no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I'm going to be OK."
Lopez is now dating her backup dancer Casper Smart.
