Do you ever just feeling like hanging it up? I often feel like I’m stuck on a treadmill, working myself to death but not getting anywhere. This is one of the joys of being a business owner, constantly trying to come up with new plans and ideas, trying to get things in motion, but it seems something always gets stuck in the wheel. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful for what I have, for getting the bills paid here and at home. But, being in my and my husbands position is very wearing on you physically and mentally. You have to be ready for whatever comes your way, you have to solve problems quickly, and you have to decide what to cut or not cut. You have to motivate yourself and others who work alongside you. You have to grin and bear it although deep down you want to lash out at anything and everyone.
On days like this, I just have to remind myself of the scripture, “All these many people who have had faith in God are around us like a cloud. Let us put every thing out of our lives that keeps us from doing what we should. Let us keep running in the race that God has planned for us. Let us keep looking to Jesus. Our faith comes from Him and He is the One Who makes it perfect. He did not give up when He had to suffer shame and die on a cross. He knew of the joy that would be His later. Now He is sitting at the right side of God.” (Hebrews 12:1-3 NLV)
I must keep on keeping on until everything is over or until I’m supposed to do something else.
