#75Hard Day 48: What To Do When You Feel Stuck
▶️ Regardless of the area—nutrition, spiritual growth, finances, career, goals, relationships, etc., we all feel stuck from time to time and like we aren’t making progress.
▶️ What should you do when you just feel stagnant?
▶️ First, go to the Lord and make sure you are in the place He has called you to be. Once you are sure that lack of forward progress isn’t from disobedience, you can go to work being faithful with the last thing you know you were called to do.
▶️ Sometimes He wants you to be in a place of stillness in order to accomplish a work in and on you. It might be a rest and reset period. It is a lot like being in a darkroom. It feels boring and purposeless, but it is the only way for the picture to develop.
▶️ Look for opportunities to be faithful with very little thing you encounter. “Make the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.” (Eph 5:16) God will entrust you with more when you are faithful with what you have.
▶️ Use the opportunity to learn and grow. Store up things in your heart and mind so they are there when you have the chance to implement them.
▶️ Encourage yourself about what’s coming in the future by looking back at the past. Recall times when you previously felt stuck or like things were not going right. In hindsight you can see how they served to your benefit and know that even this present time of feeling stuck will serve you too.
▶️ Find a friend who will let you be real about what is going on. Someone who is willing to encourage you but also to sit with you in the tough spot and acknowledge it for what it is without sugarcoating it. There is freedom in getting to be real without having to put on a facade about how you feel.
▶️ Find a way to take action on something that will get your feeling like you can control a least a little bit of what is going on.
▶️ Are you in a season of feeling stuck? Can I help you troubleshoot it? Let me know!
