A Spiritual Mid-Life Crisis

January 15, 2017


"But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God."

Acts 20:24 (NLT)


Sometimes I feel like I’m having a spiritual mid-life crisis.  It’s a two-fold crisis really – on one side is the “so much to do, so little time” conundrum.  On the other is the “who do I think I am” mystery.  The more I grow in my Jesus journey, the more I realize I’m so out of my element here.


Take a breath sister. 

It’s not a mid-life crisis as much as it is a reality check.  A reminder that this life in Christ is an adventure, a journey, a wave I’m riding with everything I’ve got.  Some days it’s smooth sailing, and others – well, let’s just say it’s not a pretty picture. 


But, I’m making progress.  Most days.


“Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress.”  1 Timothy 4:15b (NLT)


I love this verse.  It reminds me to stay focused.  To make progress.  To be better today than I was yesterday.  Perfection is great, but will I ever reach it? 


But, striving to be more like Him is the journey I’m committed to right where I am today.


Yes – there’s LOTS of work to do. 

Yes – I’m unqualified.

That will never change.  But, I am changing, and the progress I’ve made is the proof in my puddin’.


So, let’s take a minute and toast to progress. 


Let’s celebrate how far we’ve come and look forward to where we’re going.

Because, it’s really about where we’re headed – not where we are today.


There's no time for a spiritual mid-life crisis.

Let’s get to work.

PRAY:  Ask God to reveal to you areas in your life where you need to take a breath, and acknowledge progress.  Ask Him to show you areas in your life where you need to focus on making progress.


GROW:  Commit to growing in Christ every day – getting in the Word, praying, and seeking Him in all you do.
