Over My Head!



I was in the car listening to Air1 Radio, when I heard the song, "Over My Head," by the Fray. It thrilled me to hear it. The lyrics go, "Everyone knows I'm in over my head," and that's exactly how I've been feeling lately: Over my head in every way, doing things that out of my league, out of my comfort zone and out of my mind!

God has been leading me in many steps of obedience. If I were to make a list of each step and its inevitable outcome, I would become overwhelmed. In fact, I do become overwhelmed when I don't look through the lens of faith.

I've been overwhelmed before. I was tired, frustrated and angry at God. There didn't seem like enough time in the day to do everything, and there was absolutely no room for me to enjoy life. I accused God of giving me a yoke I couldn't bear, until He said, "I never asked you to bear it."

I was out of line with God's plan in my life, doing "good things" that He never asked me to do. But, this time is different! I'm overwhelmed, but I feel at peace. There's a lot to do, but each day seems doable.

God's been asking so much of me, but the cool thing is He doesn't expect me to do it alone! There is something very exciting about being right in the middle of God's plan and knowing that there is no possible way that you can accomplish it by yourself. I know that God's hand will come through for me, and I'm looking forward to seeing Him in action.

So what about you? Are you in over your head? Is God asking you to do something that you could never accomplish alone? God is wanting to do something amazing in your life. He wants to enlarge your territory! Don't be afraid! He will strengthen your capacity to handle it. Align yourself in God's plan and nothing will be impossible for you!


Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all
things are possible." - Matthew 19.26

I am so glad you are at peace with your blessings that God has assigned to you...me too!!! I could not believe what I read about adoption...HE has placed the same feelings on my husband and I. Read my post from last Friday http://filledwithpraise.blogspot.com/2009/07/trust.html

It is a big leap of faith, but we are willing to follow because we know it is His will and it will happen in His timing. Blessings to you friend,
Amy

You encourage and inspire me, girl! I needed this reflection. Yep, I feel I'm in over my head. Yep, God is calling me out of my comfort zone into an unknown world. Yep, only HE can make it all possible. I love it when you say, God loves it when we're in over our heads in the center of His will. Praying I stay in the center of His will & not my will!

What a wonderful post. A lot of things have changed in my life good and bad. But they are definitely big changes that most people deal with over the course of many years. Shear craziness. But you are absolutely right that we are following in God's path, and we certainly aren't able to do all of this alone. Thank you for the reminder. Probably tomorrow I am going to be posting about all of these changes.

Aside from that, I wanted to let you know that I have given you a blog award! Woohoo! I appreciate your all of your reflections. Thank you! Please stop by an get it anytime!
