God isn't going to give us things we can't handle. He's going to use us for His will and glory. It's just hard to remember the Big Guy Upstairs when we're so swamped in homework, jobs, careers, and just life in general. But it really helps me to sit back for a moment and realize that it is His plans that are perfect, and not mine. It is His plans that are going to be fulfilled, not mine.
I am a planner, so I have a tendency to want to control everything to attain the outcome that I want. But I have to constantly remind myself that God is the true event planner here. He handles all the PR stuff. It's God who knows the right people to call, who communicates with everyone, and puts the right notifications out there... and he doesn't even need Facebook or Twitter to do it.
It's God who controls my finances, insures my safety, and guides my steps. Well, he tries to guide my steps, and I'm sure just like other event planners, He shakes His head sadly as His distracted and bumbling clients [aka me] dithers and dathers in an indecisive circle.
God is perfect, and so is His will--in the words of Paul, His pleasing, perfect will. His plans will never hurt us, but prosper us.
So why are we so dead set on trying to fix everything; trying to get that boy to like us, trying to get our careers started, trying to walk the path we've set for ourselves... all very admirable ambitions to be sure, but sometimes we have to sit back and say "Jesus, You know what's up here. I'ma pray for a lil bit and let You tell me what to do."
It's hard, but at the same time so relieving to know that we have an event planner doing all the big things for us. All we have to do is listen to Him and do as He says, so that by the end of this party we call life, we can go to Heaven knowing that His will has been done, and that our purpose has been fulfilled.
God is the ultimate event planner, and the ultimate event planner doesn't plan anything that could make our parties go awry.
It's the guests and the hosts (us), that do that bit ;)
