I'm mentally exhausted. Trying to do too much and feeling unsatisfied with everything I do. I’m discontent and wanting more from life; while not seeing the results from all my hard work! What does that tell you?
It tells me that I need some down time from DOING; and more time with God!
Negative emotions create insecurity in me; igniting a yearning to be more successful in writing and reaching more people. Ironically, while feeling burned out and empty; I believe DOING more will fulfill me.
Doing more would be a TEMPORARY fix to my internal chaos; but I can’t even do that right now. I’m sitting at my computer unhappy with writers block! How can I produce work this way? How will I reach people with words if I have nothing to say?
Now I’m even more stressed out. But wait; I know what to do because I’ve been in this place before. I’ve felt like this before. And now I remember what worked. Making time for God, prayer, reading the Word, putting things away and acknowledging the World won’t fall apart if I don’t write a tweet, create a post or deliver a new article.The World doesn’t rely on me for their needs; that’s not my job! It’s Gods!
My calling, work, gifts and skills don't define me or declare my worth. Although, I receive gratification when people read what I write, buy my books, send emails and appreciate me; obtaining recognition should not be my ultimate goal. Receiving praise shouldn't boost my ego; and taking on the world solo, doesn’t work! Jesus already died to save the World and he knows what he’s doing. He doesn’t need me; he chooses to use me to make a difference!
When I know and remember who I am in Christ; I can think and act in a confident, assertive and positive manner. When I release all control into God’s hands; I can experience his perfect peace, live in freedom and trust he has my best interest at heart and will take care of me.
Here's the HEART of this Trial;
When we know and understand God's love, we can live in a peace and contentment that is by far the most compelling motivator of all! We need to recognize the necessity and importance of sitting quietly and basking in the presence of God and his love!
Nothing we do or don’t do will change God’s love for us. He loves us just the same yesterday, today and always!
We need time alone to be refreshed and renewed. Quiet time to talk to God and listen to his voice.
We need to shut things off and put our focus on our marriages, kids and relationships.
We need to take a shower, go for a walk and just stop doing something all the time.
We are humans with limitations and it's important we learn and accept we all have them.
It's okay to breath. It's okay to live, having fun and enjoying life without feeling the need to prove ourselves constantly.
God understands more than we know!
Just Breath; Just Be! It's okay!
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
