What’s Getting in YOUR Way?

This is what God said:
“Before I shaped you in the womb,
    I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day,
    I had holy plans for you:
A prophet to the nations—
    that’s what I had in mind for you.”

 But I said, “Hold it, Master God! Look at me.
    I don’t know anything. I’m only a boy!” 

God told me, “Don’t say, ‘I’m only a boy.’
    I’ll tell you where to go and you’ll go there.
I’ll tell you what to say and you’ll say it.
    Don’t be afraid of a soul.
I’ll be right there, looking after you.”   (Jeremiah 1, Eugene Peterson's, "The Message")

God calls us all to things that feel beyond what we can do. It can feel overwhelming, but God is with us eery step of the way. We only have to be willing. But how do we get past our obstacles?
