While I'm on this "I imagine God saying" kick, what if God said this?:
"If I told you the responsibilities you'd have in the future they would seem too big for you and it would overwhelm you. In fact if you truly saw what you were responsible for now, it would crush your spirit. But in reality it's just a little job and it fits you. It's ok. It's good. You can and will do it. The real job is mine, the ultimate responsibility for winning or losing, loving or waiting. Redemption is a long game and I'm the best player, and I'm focused and playing. I'll let you in on some more of it if you like."
