Feeling The Pressure

December 16th is coming at me waaaaay too quickly. There is so much to do and my brain can’t seem to lock down and push through all the lists and phone calls and budgets.  I definitely don’t feel qualified to do this job most of the time, but this is when I realize how important it is to have Holy Spirit’s help. When I feel inadequate, then I can honestly lean on Him and not on my own understanding. Yes, we need to study and be excellent in what we set our hands to do – obviously… God’s not really keen on showing up and doing everything for us but He does get pretty excited about partnering with us to make things supernaturally come together and blow our minds.

God’s grace is what gets me through every weekend worship service, every Glory Academy production, every seasonal event here at the church….I could not do this without Him. Even when I am feeling tremendous pressure – which I am – I have learned to rest in Him and believe that in the end all things work together for our good.

So – when you feel overwhelmed…what do you do?

    Go shopping – for Imagine Christmas necessities!! 😉

    More thoughtfully, God has been reminding me lately that it’s not about what we do for Him. There are plenty of people doing stuff for God without any of His help. When we partner with Him is when lives are changed…including ours.

    Amazing how different, yet how alike our lives can be. I couldn’t do it, none of it, without Holy Spirit.

    I curl up in the fetal position in the corner and whimper softly. Then I hear Mary Poppins in my head…

    It goes a little like this…

    I write out a list of the things God has already done in my life. The things that amaze me still.
    Then, I eat ice cream.

    I take a drive to a favorite place, take in all the beauty and then remember God is so much bigger than my stress! Nothing takes Him by surprise! I’m so glad it doesn’t.

    I think about Bryan swimming with sharks and figure the problem I’m facing can’t be worse than that!!!!!

    I take a deep breath and look at something that is more calming and organized than my life… like a Pottery Barn catalog or a empty white room.

    God is attracted to our weakness.
    Especially when we recognize and tell Him we CAN’T do it without Him. How can it not move His heart to help us? Just like us with our kids. We love to help when they say, “Mommy, help, I can’t do it without you!” There’s no way I’m gonna stand there and let them struggle on their own. I can’t wait to jump in and do it with them. I think God’s the same with His kids.
