Losing steam? Don’t worry…this is normal!
Whenever I start a new group I am all-systems-go… for the first few weeks. Then, halfway through I start to lose steam. Big time. If you are in the same boat, I want you to know something. IT’S OKAY! In fact, this mid-session slump is quite normal; all groups experience this and your group isn’t failing.
So what do you do?
Don’t think of a good excuse for bailing. Trust me, this doesn’t help at all. It makes the slump last longer and completely disengages me from the group.
Show up. Often, these are the weeks that blow me away. I see how God is working in the women around me and I leave encouraged by my friends, God’s presence, and proud of the fact that I didn’t bail on my group.
Bottom line: The slump is normal. Push through it and watch what God will do.
