Can You Relate To This Pastor’s Story?

“For the past two months I haven’t been able to focus on my work; I feel like I’m just going through the motions.

“If I were honest with you, I’d tell you I’m just getting by and trying to stay ahead of what seems like the next most important thing in my email or on my to do list. I’m doing this not because I want to, but because I know I have to.

“I know deep down that people are counting on me and that’s my only motivation for doing anything right now—fear of letting people down.

“For some reason I’m not enjoying any of my work. I’m asking myself why I chose this profession. I’m not sleeping well, I feel 100-miles away from my family, and I’m impatient with my spouse and children.

“Sometimes in the morning as I try to have a better day than the day before, I find myself leaning on my desk, head-in-hands, weeping and asking God what’s wrong with me. ‘Oh God, what’s wrong with me?'”

If you can relate to this pastor’s story, you may be suffering or on the verge of suffering from burnout, but we’re here to help.
