I have had feelings of worthlessness lately. I count all of the things I haven't done instead of the things that I have done. I have been looking back instead of forward, and I have been worrying about tomorrow instead of focusing on today. I am not the only one.
Apparently, these feelings are normal. Everybody feels this way. Just because it's the norm, doesn't mean it's a good thing. It just means everyone is doing the same thing.
What if I decide to change things up a bit? What if I decide to live in the now? (I am not talking about procrastination. That brings a whole new set of problems.) What if I just don't worry about the vacation and just write down the timeline when things need to be done and complete the tasks in their time? What if I plan a reasonable daily schedule with lots of time for hugs and play? What if I count my accomplishments instead of my failures? What if I trust that God will give me all of the help I need?
What if that was to new norm?
But He answered me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." Hence, I will boast most gladly of my weakness, in order that the power of Christ may dwell within me. For this reason, I rejoice when I endure weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and distresses for the sake of Christ. For it is when I am weak that I am strong. 2 Cor 12: 9-10
