John 4:14 (KJV) but those who drink the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring which will provide them with life-giving water and give them eternal life.”
At about this time of the year, energy-lows and ‘power outages’ are common: For example,
- paralysis from having too much to do and not knowing where to start from- (a common after effect of taking up too much).
- lethargy and moodiness which just lingers on and on…
- reluctance to bounce back after dropping the ball.
- lack of boldness to pick oneself up and try again after a great fall.
Funny enough, this loss of energy peaks when our zeal is most needed…
Nevertheless, we can’t afford to just fold our arms and watch life pass by; there is too much at stake.Therefore, as people often need to connect to alternative power sources in regions where power supply is erratic, you also need to learn to change over and get your groove back when your energy level drops.
In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are…
This short true life story highlights how this reality is normal for any working-class adult, and how the Holy Spirit becomes relevant to peak performance in the corporate world. It also teaches how to get your life back when experiencing an energy ‘low’. Enjoy it!

I dragged myself out of bed, muttered some prayers, struggled to read some verses rather religiously, and off I went: totally demotivated from the very start.
Predictably, events at work didn’t help matters with service disruptions here and there for reasons ranging from service provider issues to unpaid bills. The lassitude was sickening!
To cap my frustration, by 10:00pm, I still hadn’t finished my departmental report, details of which I would need to present at a biweekly IT Management Meeting at 8.00am the following morning.
I had been ‘coasting’ on that task for about two days with all my facts and figures flying loosely about, since I just couldn’t find the motivation to … Read more here
