Feeling down

Like nature has season – fruitful times and dormant times – our growth with the Lord will also go through dry times and high times.   But if you have been in a desert too long, try some of these ideas I found recently on a post by a pastor I’ve started listening to – Steve Furtick.

-Pray out loud.
-Write your prayer out.
-Read your Bible out loud.
-Apologize to someone.  Even if it’s not primarily your fault.
-Talk to someone you trust.  If you don’t have someone, hire a professional.
-Rest.
-Exercise.
-Start eating better.
-Drive around listening to a sermon.
-Turn up some worship music really loud.  Shut the door.  Sing along.
-Go back and do the thing you know you were supposed to do.
-Get organized.
-Repent.
-Encourage somebody who would never expect it.
-Get back in church.  Serve somewhere.
-Quit complaining.
-Go on a date with your wife.
-Tell somebody, “thank you”.
-Give some money away.
-Call on the name of Jesus.
-Remember how far He’s brought you.
-Realize that He’ll never ever leave you.

Just a few ideas to get you started.
