When is enough enough?

I had a call today telling me to not stress out. It seems some of my interactions in the past two days had revealed that I'm a bit on overwhelm these days. There is sooooo much good and exciting stuff happening at Oak Grove UMC, I'm having trouble keeping up with all the details. So I'm asking myself when will what I've done, what we as a congregation are doing be enough?

In someways, it will never be enough because there will always be someone who needs the love of God in their life. On the other hand, trying to do it all could mean we don't trust God to take care of what needs to be taken care of. Trying to do it all often means someone else isn't having an opportunity to offer their gifts in service.

So I'm trying to sit back and say, "Enough," How do you know when you need to say, "Enough?"


  1. yeah you did seem a little on edge yesterday

  2. I've missed some of these posts (I'm back at work) and I so love this one! I have NO answer- but I think that there are a lot of people on edge lately. I do think that it is hard (and stressful) to sit back and say, "Enough.".
