Episode 009: Lessons From Ministry Failure and Burnout - Part 2

Episode Takeaways:

  1. Cling to the calling.
    • "Don't doubt in the dark what you heard in the light."
    • Your calling doesn't change just because you're going through a dark season.
  2. Seek counsel and stay in community.
    • Stay in proximity with people who love you and who can speak into your life.
    • You will need to seek these things in this season, because you will be inclined to isolate yourself.
  3. Manage you spiritual and physical energy.
    • Burnout is usually systematic. It usually occurs over a long period of time. Systematic adjustments can often times help you avoid burnout. 
    • Listen closely to trusted friends and family to help give you honest perspective. 
    • Do not be ashamed to seek professional counseling help or to take a sabbatical.
  4. Run to God, not from Him.
