How to deal with the Back-to-Work Blues
(Or, how to handle any transition where you go from the heights of fun to the less ideal nitty gritty busy):
Remind yourself (and get others to remind you) that:
· You were made for such a time as this… even this day-to-day, cubicle place. Of course, there are much bigger, more important things in this overall destiny of yours, but this too you were made for (Esther 4:14).
· Build and settle as though you were staying for a long time. Increase and do not decrease. Seek the peace and prosperity of this place. Pray to the Lord for it (Jeremiah 29:5-7).
· You’re being prepared for other things. This place is giving you tools for next steps, tasks beyond, other demands…(see Joseph, Moses, David, Daniel, etc etc).
· Remember your thankfulness… because you’re so thankful… for the people, the provision, the orchestrating, the evenings and mornings, your fulfilled, satisfied heart.
