(1) Get away and rest. Stress-filled minds are not noted for coming up with good answers. Spend time with God. He’s already determined your future (Isaiah 46:10).
(2) You’re not the only one involved. If you don’t know how (or you’re unwilling) to pass the baton to someone who can take things to the next level, you lose, they lose and the dream loses.
(3) Don’t just focus on what you’re leaving behind. Think also about what you’re taking with you when you go; e.g self-worth, wisdom, faith for the next challenge and the joy of knowing you’ve done the will of God. Listen, “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave Me to do” (John 17:4).
Faith is a ‘substance’. You can take it with you wherever you go. It’ll grow in any climate, thrive in any economy and move any mountain. It’s the voice within you that says, “I can’t wait to see what God has for me next.” It’s the greatest evidence that what you can conceive, by God’s help, you can achieve!
Hebrew 11:1 (KJV)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
