It can be easy to get stressed or overwhelmed. I do this from time to time. I may not show it, since I don’t show much emotion on my sleeve, but it happens. There is much work to be done, but God has called you to this place at this time and knows that you are the person He has called to accomplish His work. You are the leader he needs in front of the people you are in front of. Jesus doesn’t need the great authors, He doesn’t need the great preachers we all share on social media. He needs (wants) you to be obedient. He wants you to say yes to the things you need to say yes to. He wants you to say no to the things you need to say no to. Jesus wants you to trust that He has it under control and you do not need to waste your energy on worry. Even His word confirms it.
Psalms 56:3 (ESV)

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

Luke 12:25 (ESV)

And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

1 Peter 5:7 (ESV)

casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Psalms 34:4 (ESV)

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.

1 John 4:18 (ESV)

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Hebrews 13:6 (ESV)

So we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?"
