I list such as this tends to cause freak-out moments. Freak-out moments are when I have tons of things to get done and suddenly remember all of the things at once. I then become extremely stressed and “freak-out” over all I have to do. This is usually the conversation I have with myself, “Oh my gosh I have so much to do! How will I ever get it done? It’s too much. This is too much pressure for one person. I’m not ready to handle all of this. This seems impossible. I’m going to have a heart attack before it’s all done. There’s just no way I can do this.” I was having one of these moments last week, having that exact conversation in my head. And when I thought, there’s just no way I can do this, I heard God say to me, “No you can’t, but I can.” I love when God does that. When I’m crying out to Him, saying I can’t do it, wanting Him to tell me that I can do it, and instead He says, “No you can’t, but I can.” It’s something that should be so obvious to a Christian, but yet I need to be reminded of it all the time. I am so thankful that my Father doesn’t expect me to do it. I’m so glad that “with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
