In a funk

This is my first time being in a funk. For those who have experienced one, my prayers go out to you. It has been hard pulling out of the funk. It started last year and instead of getting better it seemed to get worse.

I tried to write, but why I kept wondering. I’m not going to sale, why waste your time. My mind refused to listen. It continued to create characters in my head. It introduced me to different ideas for future books.

The good thing about this funk is my relationship with God. I think I’ve worn his ear off with our conversations. I’d been questioning my faith and my purpose in life.

The funk had me skipping church and staying home. I just didn’t have the desire to fellowship with others. I know that’s wrong, but at the time that’s how I felt.

Last week we had Vacation Bible school and it was like a revival for me. God whispered in my ear that it was time to step out of the funk and know he is still in control.

I have two weeks before the SORMAG online conference and I’m looking forward to a week of talking about books and writing.

How do you stay clear of the funk?

I like to think of God standing by patiently waiting on us, and listening to all our whining/crying/pleading/fussing, until we're ready to get up and get on with living the life He's given us.
