when is too much too much?
Ok….let me preface this by saying that I don’t want to come across as complaining. God has blessed my wife and I with good jobs and has brought us to this point for a reason. So, I’m not here to complain…but maybe a rant wouldn’t hurt.
I’m a director of family/children’s ministry. Last week I also led worship. Tomorrow I’m preaching. Last Tuesday I was in Indianapolis (two hours away…turned into an overnight trip) on a hospital call. Thursday morning was spent fixing a computer in our church’s “library”…if you could call it that. Tonight I drove to Indianapolis to pick up a mission team returning from Haiti. Monday I worked a bit on our church’s website. Monday night I spent working at home on an After Effects project to showcase the Haiti trip.
At what point do you stand up and say too much? It’s not that it is unnecessarily too much…maybe it’s just too many things…too much of too many different things. I do enjoy preaching, leading worship, and visiting hurting families in the hospital. I also really enjoy web design/programming and graphic design/video post-production. I enjoy all the things I’ve done in the last week. But if I am supposed to do all these things, how can I ever focus and be great at my first role…. a children/family ministry director? Is it my fault? Probably in some ways. Is it their fault for asking? Probably in some ways….
I dunno, maybe I’m just tired and incoherent. I’ll let you know how the sermon goes tomorrow….
