Yesterday I realized I was in a ‘Funk’….well, actually Keith said to me, ‘are you in a ‘funk’? This is my word/description I use when I am down in the dumps. Typically I call or email Keith and say, “I need you to pray, I am in a ‘funk’”. However, this time he pointed it out to me. I was aware of it, but figured it would pass. A funk for me is when I have let all the things going on around me weigh me down. I stop relying on God and take it all on myself. It’s a bad habit, but one I am way better at handling now than in years past. It doesn’t come on often, just when there is a lot going on and I should be giving it all to Him and trusting he will take care of it.
I don’t like the ‘funk’ feeling, the ‘woe is me’, ‘nothing is going right’, ‘could it get any worse’ kind of feeling. So, last night I determined to pull myself out of it and get back to being myself. Well, I woke up this morning and there it was again…..kind of like a fog hovering all around me. I kept telling myself I needed to let it go, but it kept hanging on. So, later as I was standing in front of the mirror putting on my makeup I thought to myself, enough is enough, I stopped looked at myself and stated the following:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
I am the head and not the tail
He who began a good work in me will continue it
He came so that I could have peace
He knows his plans for me; He is my future and my Hope
Definitely couldn’t remove it without Him……
I love His word!
God is good!
Now I am feeling spunk and not funk! Woot Woot
