How I brought back my ambition over my last unmotivated state.

    1. Read the Word of God, especially the Psalms of King David.

      You’d be hard pressed reading a few chapters of Psalms (chapter 30 is great place to start) and not bear your soul, weep to God, and wrestle in your anger like King David did throughout the written songs, poems and hymns that he wrote.

      You’re not alone in the way you feel, remember that believers all over the world experience the same [1 Peter 5:9] and you can take a little comfort in knowing that special phrase — that God is always with you [Joshua 1:9]– you are not alone.
    2. You can always worship God, Thank him, and remember your many, many, many, many blessings to alleviate the tunnel vision on the perspectives that are causing you to spiral into a sense of joylessness and lack of motivation that can lead to depression and despair if the truth is not spoken into lie.

      It is easy to fall into this state, since the believer is dealing with a world that Jesus and His Disciples warned us would be terrible, as promised [2 Timothy 3:1-5, John 16:33], and it will also affect us at times living in the midst of a degenerated society. God has us here for a reason, and he will force you out when He needs you to move. Seek him, stand firm, doing all that you can to stand; Stand firm [Ephesians 6:13].

      But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God– having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”
      – 2 Timothy 3:1-5

      So don’t be surprised, expect it!
    3. Do an activity that brings you joy, most likely an old childhood activity you may have not tried in some time, or something more recent that you’ve neglected to do that brings you happiness.

      For me, it was taking a day off to play video games that I grew up on from my childhood, that either still work to this day or have been remade for modern players. I had so much fun, I forgot how much joy I was missing out on from not taking time to enjoy your first loves or latest hobbies.

    Factors that can lead to an unmotivated state.

    1. Focusing constantly on the negatives, this is obvious but in the tormented state, you can’t seem to get the right perspective in the moment or calm down if you’re already irritated, upset, and at a loss for a thirst for life — this is where the enemy wants to have us.

      We need, as hard as it is at the time, to put on the Full Armor of God found in Ephesians 6:11-18. It is blurred, but deep down when you come calm from your frantic state, you know how many blessings you have, beginning with limbs, breath, and heartbeat, clean water, food, shelter, car, computer, phone, internet, entertainment… and you can go on listing from there. Amen!
    2. Focusing on the selfishness, narcissistic characters that thrive in todays society. They do not think of others, and this causes others that do think of others to have a thorn in their side to see the evil, lawlessness and lack of awareness for others feelings and wellbeing being demonstrated daily from strangers and those you love alike.

      The scriptures warned us in advance and gave a promise as a remedy for this phenomena [2 Timothy 3:1-5] that we would ultimately experience in John 16:33 In this world, we WILL encounter troubles of all kinds, so don’t be surprised [thrown off, angered, dismayed], but instead, take heart — for our Savior Jesus Christ has overcome the world! Leave your cares, worries, burdens at the Throne of God.
    3. Bored with work or stuck in the mundane, or dealing with a recent failure or unrealistic outcome. Work has to be done with reason and passion, as if working unto the Lord, as the Bible says. God is our manager, and he is the one that gave us the ability to create wealth as stated in Deuteronomy 8:18. The skills, talents, and place of work you are currently in are no accident, see Exodus 35:35, 1 Corinthians 15:58.

      Trials and tribulations can throw us off course sometimes, we have to remember to rely on God who is always for us, willing to shower us with wisdom from above, along with grace and mercy beyond measure when we seek him, ask and wait patiently.
    4. Focusing on the evil politics and governments in power that rape and pillage the poor in order to benefit the evil elites. New World Orders and other dark documentaries are fun for a time, but too much of it can lead us to actually believe that absolutely everything is evil and tarnished when the reality is God created everything and said it was good in Genesis 1; and how beautiful a creation it is!

      It is true. The bible says it too! We must remember that God appoints the rulers of the world to do his bidding for times and seasons and reasons that we don’t understand and may never know why, but God does and He’s in ultimate control and as believers we are held in the very palm of his hand, so just render to Caesar what is Caesars’ from even out of a fishes mouth you know God will provide, and how much more are you than birds, and he cares for them and the lilies of the field all the same as stated in Matthew 6:26-34.

    In Conclusion,

    The battle is the Lords, so take it to Him; see 1 Samuel 17:47.

    “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” – James 1:5

    You are where you need to be, pray about where you should be, why you feel the way that you do, what you can do about the things that are taking your joy and stealing your peace and do your best to remedy them as best as possible; then just wait. 

    “At their wit’s end, they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out” – Psalms 107:27-28

    “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31

    May this help and bless the one that reads it.
