Sometimes, I feel a little intimidated by our assigned work in Cactus. Sometimes, I get a glimpse of how HUGE this project of developing an program for English as a Second Language students truly is.
I realize that I cannot do this on my own, or even with the help of other dedicated individuals. This is a God-sized project.
Many times, I am not working on God-sized projects, but rather Liz-sized projects. I spend my time on things I can handle, or activities that sorta stretch me but not too far, mind you!
There are several benefits to joining with God on a God-sized project:
1. I really depend on prayer.
2. I realize that I cannot do this alone (contrary to the American spirit of independence and self-reliance, Christianity consists of dependence on God and interdependence on our brothers & sisters).
3. The work is worthwhile. To do work that has eternal significance is highly encouraging and motivating.
4. He does most of the work. We see Him work and orchestrate events, sometimes before we are even aware that we have the need.
Working on a God-sized project may be intimidating, but it is worthwhile.
