I know all too well what it feels like to be stuck. I was stuck for a very long time. It was such a frustrating place to live. I knew that I was not where I was supposed to be but I wasn’t clear on where I wanted to be. I had no idea how to get unstuck. Does this sound familiar?
After many years I finally got clear on what I wanted to do, be, and have. This clarity allowed me to create a plan of action to change my life. Getting here was not easy for me. I had much loss, disappointment, and frustration…unnecessarily.
Yes, you read correctly. Much of my turmoil was unnecessary and caused by yours truly. While I did not like the journey to get where I am, unstuck. My experience allows me to help so many people, people just like you. So, get ready for what I’m about to tell you. It may hurt but if you consider what I am saying you’ll realize it’s true. If you do what I suggest, things will change for you.
The real reason that you are stuck is one of the following:
1. You have not sought the Lord for His plan for your life.
When someone tells me that they’re stuck I know that they have not sought the Lord concerning His plan for their life. God promises to give us wisdom if we ask for it in faith (James 1:5).
If you’re stuck take some time, get quiet and seek the Lord. He says He’ll answer so keep seeking until you have your answer. If I told you I buried one million dollars in your backyard for you, I am pretty certain that you would not dig in one spot for 3 minutes and give up if you didn’t find it. You would keep digging until you found it. All day, all night, all week if you had to. Use that same approach for finding out God’s will for your life. He has it, don’t stop seeking Him until you have it.
2. You know God’s plan for your life but are choosing not to do it.
If you have sought the Lord for His plan for your life and He has told you and you have chosen to go a different direction, you will feel stuck.
God’s plan for your life is good (Jeremiah 29:11). He is God, He knows everything. If He tells you to do something, it’s best for you. Even if what He is telling you to do doesn’t seem to be the answer to what you currently need. Even if what He says makes no sense to you. Even if what He says scares you because you don’t think you’re equipped to do it. He knows best, His way is best. Obey Him or continue living in the land of the stuck.
There you have it, the real reason you’re stuck. Find out God’s plan for your life and do it!
