What To Do When Your Week Is Underwhelming

You ever have a week that was just…..meah?

 

Not necessarily bad but not seemingly amazing either. A week where you may have done just enough to get by, just enough to not lose it, just enough Word to hold on, just enough eating right so you didn’t feel like a total fatty, just enough moving so you didn’t feel like a total sloth?

 

Ok good. At least I know I’m not the only one. So as I sit on Sunday evening reflecting on my past week, I find myself already trying to compensate last week’s average performance by strategizing an UBER productive next week. Just then, the Lord, my sweet sweet Father came in with this gentle reminder.

 

Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.” Jeremiah 1:12

 

He went on to say….

 

“Tyra, even when you feel as if you haven’t been busy, productive or ‘making it happen’, you have already prayed my Word and in this case it is more than enough. You have already declared my truth. You have already sown. Your faithfulness to pray my Word and to believe my Word ministers in heaven even at this minute. Hold fast to the vision I have already given you because you have seen well. I continue to watch over my Word. My Word has come full circle. I released it to you. You took hold of my truth and released it back to me now I am faithfully acting upon it. And I am not acting alone. You see I have Watchers. Angelic watchers have descended from heaven. I have commanded my angels to carry out the plans I have for you. And as you already know these plans are for good. So take heart sweet girl. No need to pressure yourself to engineer “the machine”. Simply abide in me and follow my daily instructions and SEE my plans manifest.”

 

Replace your name with mine. Let this be a reminder to you on the days when you feel like you could be and should be doing more. Now if you’ve been willfully disobedient that’s another matter. But if you know you’ve been diligent, faithful, and obedient but aren’t “feeling” super productive, take heart. Life happens in cycles. Rest-Reap, Plant-Plow, Sow-Surrender-Sit-Collect. Ebb and flow.

 

If He’s said it, it is so.

 

If you’ve declared His Will, His Word back to Him, it is so.

 

As it is in heaven, so it shall be on earth.

 

 

“Believe, abide, obey and SEE my promises come to fruition”, says The Lord. Click To Tweet

 

It is so.

 

Seems like that week of average wasn’t so bad after all.

 

As always it is my prayer that you’ve been Inspired To Live Fully!

    Oh, those weeks…I get to the end of the week and as I reflect on what I have accomplished, it doesn’t seem like much…but I know those ‘little things’ matter so much. I love that you heard so clearly from the Lord – that happens to me, too. Thanks for sharing on Grace and Truth.

    Amen! Don’t you just love it when our precious Lord lovingly whispers His powerful truth to us? This is such a great reminder to me that His Word goes forth, and does NOT return void, but will accomplish what He has planned for our lives! Blessings to you, Tyra!

    What a special message He gave you, my friend! Thank you so much for sharing it. I get way too caught up in producing and had many of those weeks this summer where I felt I didn’t do enough. I’m so thankful to read your words this morning reminding me what is truly important.
