Ep. 41 | What To Do When Things Are Worse Than When You started
Published March 9, 2021 by Tom Hermann
Have you ever been pursuing a goal or a transformation and felt like you were in a worse position than when you started?
How did that feel?
If you're like me then it doesn't feel great and it creates the idea and temptation to stop the pursuit of reaching your goals and fulfilling your life purpose. God set it up for the purpose of life to become more like Him, and this requires faith to allow the process to strip away the pieces of our life that don’t reflect Him.
In today's episode, I want to share with you a new thought to hold when you feel like you're in the messy middle and ready to give up. There are plenty of circumstances in life where we don't hesitate to pursue through the messy middle. You know what I'm talking about if you've ever committed to an exercise regimen or finished a home remodel.
In both scenarios, the situation must get worse before it can get better. A home remodel requires a demolition phase, and our muscles must become sore from being torn down in order to build back stronger. This is for you if you're running low on hope and feel behind.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when we fulfill our desires it gives us life.
Losing hope can cause you to feel enslaved to your circumstances
Home remodels and sore muscles are indicators of how transformation works
Hope is found through perseverance and building character
