For the Woman Who Feels Unmotivated

By: Jenifer Metzger

There are days I am productive. I wake up early, get ready, have my time with God, and then I get busy with super speed taking care of everything in my home. The laundry is washed, dried, folded, and put away. The dishes are done. There is not speck of dust in the house and the vacuum lines are perfect. My blog posts and social media posts are scheduled in advance. I end the night exhausted but feeling good about all I accomplished.

Then, there are days I am unmotivated. I struggle to get out of bed and I am slow to get ready. After my morning routine and spending time with God, I feel like I need a couch break. After far too long of reading or scrolling through Instagram, I toss a load of laundry in and pick up the house a little. Only to feel the magnetic pull of the couch once again. This little back and forth continues all day long. I go to bed feeling as though nothing was accomplished.

Can you relate?

For the Woman Who Feels Unmotivated

So whether you eat or drink,
or whatever you do,
do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31

No matter what our days hold -household chores, climbing the corporate ladder, running children to and from activities, managing an office, caring for an elderly loved one, teaching children, or whatever responsibilities we have- we need to do it all for the glory of the Lord. When we set our eyes on Him and work for His glory, our tasks seem more manageable and purposeful.

Often we feel overwhelmed when we are more focused on our to-do list than God and often we feel under appreciated when we focus on what others want from us instead of God. When we work for the Lord, for His glory and to care for all He has entrusted to us in this season, we find the motivation to keep on keeping on and bring glory to Him.

When your motivation tank feels empty, fix your eyes on God. Thank Him for all He has given you and ask for His strength to take care of it.

It's time for Share A Link Wednesday! Each Wednesday we invite you to leave a link to your latest blog post in the comments. We still desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories.
