When you lose your motivation and you feel like God is not helping you

Updated on April 25, 2016

Aside from change, one thing also is persistent; that is struggle. Each of us has struggles we constantly encounter in every area of our lives. Sometimes we experience it as unbearable and unstoppable. It seems unceasing peril to a point that we desperately want a halt.

Struggles rise within us or from our surroundings. It might emerge from a steady failure. It may be created from unchanging toil. It might originate from unsolved difficulty. It has different roots yet give us the synonymous distinguishable anxiety. And anxiety submits us to the perception of doubt and perplexity.

Doubt and perplexity fritter our motivation, exhaust our hopes and depletes our dreams. It generates a new you who is uncertain, coward and depressed; A new you who is inattentive, impassionate, pessimistic and without purpose for his or her existence. Abundant agony and misery consume our hearts. Undeviating angst and despair occupy our subconscious. These paved the way to prolific fear which imprisons our own true identity, restrict our potential and deteriorate our conceivable and promising future.

We human beings are gravitated by surfacing struggles and trials. We focus on them. We make them the centerpiece of our soul. However, we are designed to overcome and bring them to pass. We question the authority of God. We defile him for thinking He forsake us. We pollute our hearts by grudging on Him. We taint His wonderful plans for us. We contaminate His promises. We dishonor His name.

He said “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”. Who knows better the Creator or His creation? We are His masterpiece and He knows all about us. He said “"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Do you think you would come that far if God left you? Who are you? Apart from him, there is nothing we can do. He is the ultimate source of all. Why your struggles seem not to stop instead they appear bigger than ever? Haven’t you think of it? You are not staying on the same level. You are facing bigger struggles because you overcome those smaller. Applaud yourself and give Glory to the Lord for you have survived. You must rejoice for God is always there for you. Are you still thinking if you will make it? Isn’t your cleared trouble a sufficient evidence of how He delivered you? Did He ever tell you that He will stop? He said “I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me”.

Renew your mind with His promises and trust His plans for you for our Creator loves us the most and wants nothing but the best for us.

      There was a time in my life where I felt that God had abandoned me. I was struggling deeply with a sense of inadequacy and even considered taking my own life. Thankfully, I found people who helped me redefine my view of God from a merciless taskmaster to a loving Father. Since then, I have adopted the scripture "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding" as my theme song. It has helped me to remember that when I feel inadequate and fearful, it is my anxiety speaking, and not my loving Father in Heaven.
