Sometimes I am just overwhelmed

Sometimes when I think about what I am about to do, I am just totally overwhelmed. How can I do this? I am not good at asking people for money or for help. I am not good at following through. Can I actually do this physically? It is a lot, a long commitment. Am I crazy to think that I can do it?

Then my answer is I just need to rely on God. Actually on my own, I probably can't do this, but with God all things are possible. I really believe this is of Him, so He will make a way. I will have to make an effort too, but He will handle the things that I can't. This is surrender, this is trust. There are so many factors that I just don't and won't have control over, so I will just have to sit back and let my Lord take care of those. I will do my part, asking for sponsors, getting the word out about the charities so they can reap the benefits of this, train my body, lose some more weight (this will be so much easier if I am not carrying all this extra weight), read all I can from others who have done this, and just basically try my best to be prepared. Then I just need to give the Lord control and let Him work and lead me. If all that comes of this is that I learn to totally put my trust in the Lord, then it will be all worth it!

UPDATE: I should be meeting with Northtowns Pregnancy Center next week, then I can hopefully get a link on here for you so you can see more of what there about and so you will be able to support them if you feel led.
