100 different directions

Sometimes I feel like I am being pulled in 100 different directions... How can I be a whole and complete person, when at any given time, someone ~ something is taking from me? I just keep trying to hold it together... Keep trying to do it all... I push myself to be all things to all people. 

The truth is, my earthly body (my sinful nature) wants to say that I (me, myself, and I) CAN DO IT ALL, but that is far from the truth. God didn't design us that way... I cannot do all things, and I am not called to.

If I am trying to lean on myself to accomplish all things, how am I allowing Him to do a "great work in me (Phill. 1:6)?" If I want to be all things to all people how am I allowing Him to "receive glory, honor, and power (Rev 4:11)?"

 How can I ALLOW Him to BE GOD if I am too busy playing God in my own life?

May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together - spirit soul, and body - and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 MSG
