If you were truly called of God you would be his hands and mouthpiece to the people you lead. You would have the words come into your mind that God would speak, and somehow the time needed to spend with them for support. These things can only come from God. If not, you'll have to find them on your own. Don't be afraid to let these people know the difference. It won't be a sign of weakness, rather courage and strength. I think it is better to be honest than to try to fake spiritual gifts. We have all seen enough of those. Just be honest, and be a friend to those you love. Surely that will be enough. Your heart is in the right place, but you also have to care for yourself (first). You are doing so well, but don't take on too much all at once. It's out there I know, and people are desperate wherever you look. Advise them to pray and read their Bible, and try to find their own answers. Encourage them and teach them how to rely on God, rather than you, stuff like that. I truly feel for you, and pray you will know what to say to those in such desperate need.
