Ever had those days when focus has faded, dreams seem delusional and the mind is not willing to go the distance? That we me yesterday. Last week on holidays, I was on a high and felt energised and alive. Now, back in the chair this week and within 3 days I am drained (again). So what's going on?? It's not that the 'I'm not good enough' giant has arrived (I pushed him out awhile ago) but his older brother, "This is never going to happen" has turned up for an unexpected visit. Apparently, all the time, effort, thoughts, plans and dreams that I have been working on have prompted this contact. He is sitting at my kitchen table, sipping on a coffee and waiting for me to engage in a casual conversation.
So how can I get this giant to leave? How can I regain the mindset I had last week?
God never promised us an easy life. He never said that as a Christian we won't face challenges. What the bible tells us is...
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through him who strengthens me."
So today, I am grabbing hold of that verse. Today I will remember this when the mind wanders, the doubt starts and that giant boils the kettle for yet another cup of coffee.
If you are feeling it too, if you are holding a promise in your heart but the giant is settling in, remember this verse. Be strong, be brave and remember a promise from God is one that cannot be broken...by any giant.
