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:
Like that feeling of being burdened by having too much to do and yet not doing anything for not knowing where to start- (an after effect of very strict New Year goals, resolution and commitment …)
Like that feeling of lethargy and moodiness which just lingers on and on…
Like that reluctance or uncertainty at making a come back when we have dropped the ball…
Like the 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…
In any case, there is too much at stake and one can’t afford to just fold his arms and watch life pass by. Therefore, as would be required to power a life line which runs on raw power in regions where supply is erratic, you need to learn to change over your Power Source, Get your Groove back, Live Again and Not Die!
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, as well as one of the ways 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
