stretched

At times I feel ... S - T - R - E - T - C - H - E - D ... I'm sure you feel that too.  It may come cause you are so busy or because of things outside your control.  What I know is that those are the times we need to get perspective from God.  Almost more than any other time, we need to see when we are getting stretched and do something about it.

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB) 
I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;From where shall my help come? 2 My help comes from the LORD,Who made heaven and earth.

Hebrews 12:2 (NASB)
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Psalm 46:10 (NKJV)
Be still, and know that I am God;I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

John 6:35 (NLT) 
Jesus replied, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Real simple.  Feeling stretched?  Back off a little.  Look to God.  Focus on Jesus.  Listen to His voice.  Feel His presence.  It is then that we realize that our help, our success and even what feeds us comes from the Lord.  Admit you need that.  We need Jesus.  Even when we are not stretched, we need Jesus.  Let Him work in your life right now.
