WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE ONLY A FEW WEEKS INTO A NEW YEAR AND YOU ARE SUDDENLY “BURNED OUT”?
Well, the question posed within the title of this article is “forreal”!!! Have you ever heard the expression “THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!” Yes, it is very much real because the enemy hates you and because you are dearly loved by God, he intends to wear you out! Don’t feel bad. This just means that you are on to a good start and God has glorious plans for your life and your ministry (service unto Him for the Body of Christ-whatever that is).
Don’t give up. You were made for this! You were built for this! “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Philippians 4:13 Go ahead, repeat it and put your name in it: Denise can do all things through Christ who strengthens her!
So, what do we do, now that the new year has just come in and it seems as if we are already tired? The answer is simple but profound: We pull on our source! We look inside of our own spirit and declare that there is a river in there! There is a river inside of us that will flow and bless us with refreshing water. The water is what will give us stamina and strength so that we won’t get weary and give up. The water mixed with the Word of God will restore and give us the GRACE (divine favor and enablement) to just keep it moving. I am praying for you. I pray that your faith will never fail. I pray that you will be refreshed and never lose focus of your God given purpose! Remember, Jesus said that we who believe in Him, as the scriptures has said, out of our belly (heart, spirit) flows rivers of living waters! (See John 7:38)
