Staying Positive Even When Going Through Hard Times

Updated: Aug 6, 2021

I go through times where I feel alone, down on myself, discontent with the direction of my business, and it affects my writing. I lose motivation, I miss a few days of writing, and I take a break from the journey I’m on.


My feelings of unhappiness and low spirits usually come from a combination of home life and business life. Something at home is out of sync at the same time as something in my business took a turn for the bad.


For a short time, what it feels like is that something has sucked the life out of me, leaving me paralyzed and blind.


We Christian business bloggers all go through times where we feel lost in the wilderness during a thunderstorm. It could be related to the blogging side of our life, our personal life, or our other revenue-generating businesses.


How do we get out? How can we stay positive, even when everything around us is falling apart?


Jesus has an answer. He says we need to “have life.”


The bible says:


The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10 NIV)


The enemy doesn’t want your writings to be published. Why? Because your blogging is going to help many entrepreneurs draw closer to God. He doesn’t want you to be doing what God’s called you to do.


So what can you do to combat the enemy’s attacks?
