I Just Don’t Feel Like It

Some days, I just don’t think I have it in me.  

Today was one of those days.

My alarm went off at 6:00 a.m. this morning and I was NOT feeling it.  

That bed felt so comfortable. I had been up late with meetings. It’s my weekend off.  Everything lined up to tell me, “Take a break, Tim, you’ve earned it.”  

Everything in me wanted to roll over and go back to sleep.  I had that internal back and forth of knowing I should get up, read my Bible and workout, but really wanting an extra hour of sleep. 

After laying there pondering all this for a few minutes, my strength and determination won out.  

I got up, splashed cold water on my face, made some coffee (black like God intended) and sat down with my Bible and then did a full workout. 

I’ll be honest, there’s many a day that I lose this battle.  I give in to the easy comfort over the hard work more than I care to admit. 

If we want to make progress, we have to conquer those days when we just don’t feel like it. 

Brothers, the battle is won or lost in these moments. 

The battle is not won or lost when you question whether or not to open that browser, or text that girl, or spend a few extra minutes in the shower.  At that point, you’ve already lost. 

The battle is won or lost hours or even days before when you decide whether or not to give in to a small, seemingly insignificant temptation.  

The battle is won when you decide to stick to your journaling routine when you’re tired. It’s won when you get that workout in instead of sleeping in.  It’s won when you choose to spend time with God instead of with Netflix.  

Small battles become big ones.  Small lapses in judgement become big ones. Small failures become total relapses.  

So, my brothers, when you’re faced with one of these small battles, find the power to press through. Rely on God for courage and strength.  

Remember the battle is won not in the moments you feel powerful, but in the moments you feel weak.
