Today, I tweeted, “do your best even at your worst.” It dawned on me that when we are at our worst–in a bad relationship, a bad job, a deep depression, a long addiction–we can do our best. And I didn’t arbitrarily tweet that. I tweeted that from years of experiencing it. In the first year of our marriage, when we were at such a horrible point that divorce seemed imminent, I did my best by not letting divorce be an option. When I was hospitalized 16+ times over a span of 10 years for chronic lung problems, though my physical state was at its worst, I did my best to share my faith with doctors, nurses, pulmonary therapists, x-ray techs & the like. When I went through depression a couple years ago, I was definitely at my worst–how do you do your best when you are in the bottom of a dark, silent, isolating pit? Your best becomes your refusal to give up. I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you that many times I have been at my worst and did not do my best. But my heart’s desire has always been not to give up & to give it all I have. I don’t know where this post finds you today, but if you are at your worst–please take heart–you can still do your best.
