I celebrate living a life that is more than I can handle.
I celebrate raising children who need more than I can give.
I celebrate accepting a calling that is impossible for me to accomplish.
I celebrate being overwhelmed and not enough and dropping the ball.
If life is always comfortable and easy, then why do I need God? If life goes how I expect, then why would I ever turn to God? When life gets to be too much, I remember I’m not in control. I don’t have authority over events.
David knew this God too…
then up ahead and you’re there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can’t take it all in!
There is a big God, ready to hem me in when life gets overwhelming. So I celebrate having the courage to breathe and relax and trust in the truth that God is good and will work things for the good of those who love him.
