Mentally I’m Shot
It’s been one of those weeks. I’ve given everything I had to give and some I couldn’t afford to give. When I say I’ve been going morning, day and night since Monday. I wish I was exaggerating. Praise God my physical pain overall has remained under control. However, my mental circuits are shot. I’ve literally been trying to get my sermon for Sunday finished the past 15 hours.
Finally, I just had to call it a night. My mind has to get some rest. I will get up very early tomorrow morning hoping to find greater clarity and peace. The perfectionist in me doesn’t like feeling this way. Not to mention I never take the platform God has given me lightly. I generally spend at least 10-15 hours preparing anything I ever preach.
I guess this is what I get for preaching a message entitled “Living Confident.” God started putting this message on my heart a couple weeks ago. And, while it’s absolutely what I believe God wants me to preach about this Sunday. I’m feeling anything but confident about what I’ve prepared so far. Deep down I know this is a combo of spiritual warfare and absolute mental exhaustion. Plus, God is further teaching me how to live out this message before I preach it to others.
