Getting Unstuck: Turn Dry Bones Into Destiny

DAY 1 OF 5

Why Are You Stuck?

It happens to the best of us. There comes a time when we don't know which way to go. We can't figure out the next step, and after a while, we realize we are stuck.

It may seem like you aren't moving forward because of burnout, an unsatisfying job, a relationship in a tough spot, unmanaged health issues, not knowing your WHY, feeling like you don't have options or a financial hit. These can leave you feeling stuck in the mud.

But there is a way out.

Be Honest

To get unstuck, you have to figure out why you are stuck. Asking yourself hard questions and answering them honestly is a good start. To get where we are going, we must know where we are starting.

Spending time in prayer, journaling, or meditating on God's word are great ways to get to the heart of the matter. And usually, being stuck is a matter of the heart.

If you don't drill down to the main issue, you will continue spinning your wheels.

Ask for Wisdom

Sometimes we can't figure out why we're not moving forward. Asking God for his wisdom is always a good idea. Jeremiah 33:3 says Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

God has everything you need to get unstuck. And he will use this season to make you better, stronger, and more capable for the next. When things get hard, that is usually the training ground he has for us.

Action: Answer the following questions:

-Am I stuck because of my job, relationship, health, or finances? Is it something else?

-What feelings am I getting stuck in because of my situation?

-Do I have some areas of my heart that I need to declutter to move forward?

Prayer: Father, I can't seem to get any traction, and I need your help. Please give me your wisdom, so I know what step to take next. Take all these big emotions I am feeling in this stuck place and heal me. I want to walk out the purpose you have for me, but I can't do it without you. In Jesus' name, amen.
