The Burden of Responsibilies

I recently graduated from college, I currently work two jobs, I pay all my bills, I have chores to do around the house, I go to church at least 3 times a week, I have my own ministry, I’m an active member of another organization, I’m trying to write a book, I am planning my own wedding, I’m trying to prepare myself (mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, sexually, financially, etc) for marriage, and much more… And I just made a complaint to God about it.

I just said: “GOD! I have a lot of responsibilities in life, and I don’t like having responsibilities.”

God just responded to me: “The first thing I did when I created Adam in the Garden was give him responsibilities. As soon as I created him, I put him to work. I gave him the responsibilities of cultivating and keeping the entire Garden, AND the responsibility of naming all the animals and ruling over them, AND I gave him the responsibility of being a husband and I commanded him to be fruitful and to multiply and to subdue the earth. You may not like having responsibilities and you may find them overwhelming at times, but I created you with the ability to be able to handle all the responsibilities you have.”

Wow!! I was created with the ability, talent and skill to handle all of my responsibilities. I will not break. I will not fail. I am well-able to complete all my tasks, in Jesus name. Thanks for that reminder, God! It just gave me strength. I love you!
