Anway, there was one point last week that I got so overwhelmed that I walked outside and just started talking to God. Yes, I talk to Him inside, too, but there just seems to be something extra special about talking to the Creator of the Universe while being surrounded by His creation...and at night! I said, "God, sometimes I miss the days when I wasn't in charge." I heard Him speak so directly to my heart, "who says you have to be now? I thought I was." It sure is something when God speaks!
It just reminded me that sometimes we put on ourselves MORE pressure than He ever intended. He's God. He's Jesus. He's the King. He's Everything. He calls us to do more than we can do on our own. My youth pastor spoke this Sunday, and he said something that really hit home. He said, "If we can do everything that God has called us to do, then we don't need God. But, we CAN'T do everything...alone. We need Him!" Amen!
