Days when no matter what you do, you never measure up, you barely scratch the surface of what you want to achieve.
Days when everybody has something for you to do, and everything must be done now or else.
Days when you have no energy to do that which you are supposed to do.
Days when you realise exactly how far you are from the finish line and that overwhelming feeling of dread surrounds you and its darkness envelopes you in that abysmal state of paralysis.
Days when you really really wish things were different; that you had the wisdom to change what needs to be changed; that you had the courage to step out of line and whole heartedly go after that which you desire.
Days when there is this knot in your throat and you know you can’t breathe easily.
Days when you’re on the verge of tears. Just one wrong word, just one out-of-line phrase, and they’re off!
Days like this, I could do without.
I wish I could hibernate through those feelings and wake up on the other side, refreshed and ready to go.
Why . . . do we have to go through days like this?
We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia.
We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death.
But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again.
On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favour granted us in answer to the prayers of many.
2 Corinthians 1: 8-11
I hope, that as much as that verse helped me see perspective and alter my thinking, that it helped some of you as well, whether you’re going through rough days like this or not.
Know that He gives us strength when we feel our weakest, He provides when we are in need, and He answers when we ask.
So to you my friends, Be Ye blessed!
