At the beginning of the month or week, we’re excited with the prospects of a fresh start. We make goals and resolutions and promise to be more organized, more involved, more productive, more, more, more.
But as the days goes along, most of us have long forgotten those things or we’ve become tired of trying. Maybe we aren’t seeing the progress we want to see. Maybe our prayers don’t seem to be answered. Maybe we’re just rundown. Maybe the last few days have just been hard.
The first thing everyone will tell us to do is to keep going and to keep fighting the good fight, but how do we practically keep moving our feet each day? After all, it isn’t easy to keep going if we aren’t seeing our prayers answered and we’re tired of feeling sick or sad or whatever it is that’s draining us.
