The post-covid years have brought residual changes. It’s good that we are back to socializing, being with friends, and fellowship in our church, no longer confined by the lockdowns. That’s good.
Some of the changes we are experiencing today may not be so good.
The world is different; it isn’t business as usual.
We aren’t going back to normal.
The intensity of learning to navigate these new times has left some overwhelmed and anxious.
While we learned to “pivot” in our resilience and resourcefulness during the crisis, it still takes a toll on our bodies, our minds, and our souls.
In the continual call to shift or “pivot” into the new, have you found that you lack the sustained motivation to keep going?
Do you feel burnt out?
Do you wonder, “What’s wrong with me? Am I lazy? Am I just a procrastinator? Everyone else seems to be doing okay.”
We can all suffer at times from the lack of focus, drive, and energy to keep going no matter what we experience in life—pandemic or post-times. No matter our physical and mental stamina.
Each one of us handles conflict, crisis, and change differently.
What transpired over the last almost four years changed all of us, and certainly, it changed our lives.
What hasn’t changed is your identity in Christ, your God-given purpose, and all the resources you have to rise above the world’s drama.
I work diligently to remember who I am, whose I am, and where I’m going. Prayer, meditation, and putting my body where it needs to be–it can be challenging to take the right action.
Sustained motivation presents challenges, but like all mountains, it (you) can be moved. (Matthew 17:20)
Where are you these days? Moving mountains or staring at them?
