The past few days, I’ve been a little down, whether it’s from trying to get back into the swing of things or an illness coming on. But have you ever had those days you literally just want to do nothing?
No motivation. Nothing seems to make you feel better. Yes, we’ve all had those days, and maybe today you may be in the same boat. Maybe you’ve been dealing with a physical injury, depression, or relationship problems. I know life can be hard. There’s an infinite amount of problems. Does that give us the green light to give up? No! I understand there are some debilitating and serious issues that may prevent some from doing things, but it’s our life. How much we put into it is what we’re going to get out of it. This goes the same with our relationship with God. Do we spend more time doing other things in our life that distracts us from His presence? And in the face of adversity, these moments of illness should be when you turn to Him the most. “He can turn your fear into comfort.”
This morning, I chose to take advantage of the weather and go for a run, tackle this issue head on, see if it’ll help. Yes, it was tough and burning, but at least I attempted. Sometimes, it only takes an attempt to change your mindset and mood. Never give up. Test your durability. Are you going to pass or fail?
