You have to stop thinking that you’ll be stuck in your current situation forever. We feel like our hearts will never heal, or we’ll never get out of this impossible struggle. Don’t confuse a season for a lifetime. Even your trials have an expiration date. You will grow, life will change, and things will work out. – Brittney Moses
When one is stuck in a rut often the person loses freshness and creative thinking. Life becomes dull no matter what is happening.
One kind of rut we can get stuck in, is the nagging feeling that while we go through our daily routine we are somehow missing out on the mission or calling or purpose of our lives. For whatever reason, we’re just not able to discover what it is.
We don’t go and deliberately get ourselves stuck in a rut. But it happens. Sometimes we are out there trying our best for the Lord and all of a sudden something unexpected happens and the next thing we know we are thrown off track. We end up hitting a wall or we get side-tracked or even lose our focus. Perhaps it happened because your boss comes against you, or your family falls to pieces, or your health gets worse. Maybe you have lost your job. Let us keep our focus on God and what really matters, we can break free and live a life that truly honours him.
Just know that God can make all things new. He can take your problem and turn it into something good.
So then, let us rid ourselves of everything that gets in the way, and of the sin which holds on to us so tightly, and let us run with determination the race that lies before us. Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from beginning to end.
