Do you have things that need to be done (really what you want done, but have convinced yourself they are needs) and you establish unrealistic (which you see as perfectly reasonable) times for completion? Do you impose upon others in completing these objectives, because they are so important (not even asking what the other individuals may "need" to do) and you can't rest until they are done? When others are not willing to meet our time table, do we "create" a sense of emergency to persuade them to take "Immediate Action"? Or are we the ones who think it is "UNGODLY" not to respond to every request of someone else, even when we have things that "need" to be done ourselves? We create our own stress with our own time tables; everything can get done if we have enough time! Which brings up another observation, do all of those "fires" need to be put out? Let'em burn, don't you have more important things to do? Or put another way, do you want "unimportant things" to waste your important time? Job 30:27, "My inner self is in turmoil and never still, days of affliction come to meet me." Most important, did you pray about these things first? If so, probably 3/4 of them were not so urgent. How did you do on the STRESS TEST?
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
