When You’re Just Not Feeling It

Motivation is an incredibly popular word these days. We talk about needing motivation and losing motivation. We have motivation boards on Pinterest and find our methods of motivation. If we take a minute and think through what we mean by all of that, it’s a little humbling to realize that all this motivation talk is really a fancy way of saying, “I’m not in the mood.”  

I think this subject of motivation is important to our conversation on faithfulness. If my faithfulness is dependent on my motivation level, I am in trouble. I don’t feel like waking up early.  I don’t feel like eating right, unless, of course, I am in the motivation zone – which unfortunately seems to blow to and fro with every wind that passes. I don’t always feel like walking up to all of our visitors, introducing myself, and getting to know them. I don’t feel like filling in for the missing nursery worker…again. (Oh, I know you’ve been there!)

About Sarah Johnson

Sarah has been a pastor's wife in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Utah County, the center of Mormonism. She can't think of two more opposite places in the US, but each has been a special joy. She has 5 children and spends most of her time homeschooling and ministering alongside her husband at Fellowship Bible Church. Sarah loves the great outdoors and feeding people and agrees with C.S. Lewis that, "you can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."
