What do you get when you add "no gumption" to "discouragements"?

I don't know what it actually is, but its what I'm currently experiencing!

Right now I have absolutely no desire to do anything...well okay, sleep would be a nice thing, but right now I have no ambitious aspirations to accomplish anything.

When you couple that attitude along with a sense of discouragement in seemingly every aspect of life, you quickly have accumulated lots of frustration, much of which you can do nothing about.

Scripture is coming to my mind today which simply says, "Rejoice in the Lord, always, again I say rejoice." (Philippians 4:4)

In all honesty, at this point, I would rather wallow in my frustrations and misery than rejoice.

I realize it may sound like a pity party, and maybe to a degree it is, but it can be very nerve wracking to not have anything seemingly go your way.

Do you ever have those types of days?

I hate to admit the fact, that these words are coming from my heart. Trust me, I know what I am supposed to be doing. I know that I'm supposed to be loving the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul. I know that I am supposed to be glorifying my God and Savior all the time. I know that I'm not supposed to be anxious or worried about anything, I understand quite clearly that God will not give me anything beyond that which I am tempted.

Yet, our human/carnal side of life can quickly emerge in times when we don't feel as if things are going in our right direction.
