So, have you heard the definition of insanity as, doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result?
I have heard that for just about as long as I can remember… and yet I still act out that definition often. So, I guess you could say that I, in fact, have a little insanity.
Just recently I did this very thing. You see, if you continually push yourself further and further past your limits then you're likely to become run-down - even sick if you continue to push yourself to the point where your body physically says, 'no more.' I did this. The reason I call this insanity is because I continually think that I'm making myself stronger since I evidently believed the lie drilled into my head growing up. Pushing your limits will, in fact, make you stronger, yes. However, continually pushing past your limits without recoup time in between expecting to become stronger eventually, is what we like to call 'insanity.'
I have a bad habit of trying to take on as much as I perceive everyone else is taking on even though I wasn't created to take on that load or even sometimes some of those tasks that others do. I have my own strengths, and they have theirs. Just as we both have our own weaknesses. I feel like I only see people's strengths and therefore feel inadequate when that's only because I live with mine every day and don't see those people everyday. If I were to spend more time with all of them, then I would probably become acquainted with their weaknesses, too. It's all the eye of the beholder as they say.
Everyone has their own purpose in this world. It's not my job to try to imitate someone else's. My job is to fulfill mine only. Even if it seems like someone else isn't doing their job. It's still only my job to do mine. It's God's job to work on their heart to fulfill their purpose for Him. God is big enough to pick up the slack with someone else so that we're not always overwhelmed.
That doesn't mean He won't stretch us. He will. But it seems like only God can stretch us past our limits and make us stronger.
"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."
John 15:5 KJV
