I Just Don't Wanna!

All last week I was feeling blah!  I simply felt like a hamster on a wheel...just running and running and running and running and not getting anywhere.  

I have been working out like a crazy person, I've been meal prepping, and watching what I eat and yet my weight loss has stalled.  I haven't gained, but I haven't lost either.  The only thing all my hard work has gotten me lately is lots of dishes to wash and a sore right knee.  It's just so frustrating!

At school, I have been working my tail off trying to find ways to help my students learn the concepts they need to be successful on their end of grade tests.  I am feeling the pressure, why do they seem to be slowing down?  I'm pretty sure my head is gonna explode!

I am just so tired and want to just give up!

So I whined a little bit and then some more and maybe a little more.  And during a pause between whining sessions, the hits started coming.  

First there was this one..."Do not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up." ~Galatians 6:9
Then there was this one..."Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, and not for men." ~Colossians 3:23
Finally, he hit me with this one..."Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation in which you shine like stars in the universe." ~Philippians 2:14-15

WOOF!!! Boy does God know just the right thing to hit me with to help pull me out of a funk! I mean, I'm still tired, but I'm ready for a new week! I'm going to get back on that wheel and run my heart out!

Have a great week!
