Doldrums

Every day for the past several weeks an email appears from Wordsmith, today’s word was doldrums, the number one definition given was, “A state or period of stagnation or slump.”  It was appropriate, kind of described my day.
How do we move out of the doldrums?
That is life is it not?  There are periods of great production and then there are times when it is hard to get anything done, or it feels like you are not progressing.  There are times when it seems that whatever the undertaking, it is resisted.  One feels hemmed in, caged, thwarted at every turn.  Motivation drains away, fatigue sets in.

How do we fight this?  Romans 5:3 – 5; Philippians 3:13 – 16; 1 Corinthians 9:24 – 27; Hebrews 12:1 – 2; Hebrews 3:13; and Galatians 6:9 give us some help here.  We have to persevere.  We have to continue in the disciplines of meeting with Christ, even when there does not seem to be much there.  We need to seek and give encouragement to each other.  We all go through this.  We need each other to make it through the doldrums.  Not looking for or giving help through these times can have dire consequences.
