Do you ever have those times it feels like you’re dancing? You know the old two steps forward, three back routine?
It might be your career or a business you’re building. Or maybe a ministry you’re struggling to get traction with.
You’re focused on a great goal that would help people and your family but you just can’t break through. You’ve stretched to reach it and now you feel exhausted.
I’ve had those times, a lot of them. Yet, I’ve also learned a reverse truth. See that’s how my brain works which is sometimes scary .
Often the harder I try the behinder I get. Yeah, I know, pretty profound.
See, when I finally give in to God and say, “Ok Lord, I give. If you want me to be successful you need to act. I’ve got nothing left.”
Then surprisingly I see a sliver of light through a door that cracks open.
I cling to a promise that so often is my anchor.
“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Wow, how can I miss?
Why am I stressing and striving?
I’m not sure. I’m taking a break. We’ll talk tomorrow.
*Philippians 1:6 (NIV)
