Has there ever been a time when you second guessed your ability to accomplish something?
Are there specific times you start questioning if you’re worthy enough?
You are not alone!
Last week, I was right there in the trenches with you. I had started a new business and blog to share my passion of ministry, makeup & motherhood. I had been going live for about 4 months sharing my thoughts and little tips.
Then, all of a sudden, I could not come up with a topic for my weekly broadcast. Not only was I having a block on what to share, I was completely in my head. Telling myself that, "No one wants to hear what I have to say!" and "Who was I to think anyone wanted these little tips anyway?"
I took my pity party of one to my husband to see if he wanted to join (misery loves company, right?). I shared my doubts & worries about if I could even do this. I shared that I didn’t know if anyone had even looked at my blog, and then he stopped me.
He said, "maybe you need to step back from this."
I was so upset. I thought, not even my husband understands & he even thinks I should quit. But that’s not what he meant. He meant to step back & observe & think & then - go back at it. Oh!
What do you do to help yourself get out of a rut?
Many times I just ignore it or hide. I know, not good, but honest, right? When it’s something that really is bothering me, I find myself in the Bible looking for a nugget to point me in the right direction. So after we went away for the weekend I came back to a devotional I hadn’t touched in a few days. I needed to catch up! I am currently reading100 Days to Brave by Annie F. Downs. On day 37 the verses stood out to me.
God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! God does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, God's Spirit deeply & gently within us. - Ephesisians 3:20 MSG
