LIVING LIFE WITH WIDE OPEN HANDS
To the Girl Feeling Stuck in Life
The following blog post is taken from an Instagram Post I made 2 years ago on March 2, 2020. It's words are still 100% applicable today, and I hope they bring you some encouragement if you're feeling stuck in life.
Girl, I've gotta be honest with ya. I've been STRUGGLING this past month.
Do you ever get to that point where you feel like:
-you're being pulled in 50 different directions...
-you've lost your mojo + any clarity or vision...
-wondering what THE HECK Jesus made ya to do with your life...
-you simply can't get back on track?
If so, TRUST ME, I understand because that has been me this whole past month! I've felt so confused + all you have to do to see the proof is look at my IG account right now. It is a visual representation of just how confused I've felt.
But then this morning I was doing my morning Bible reading (Exodus 4, hey Moses 👋🏼) + was reminded of something--commitment comes before confirmation. You have to COMMIT to taking action before the big stuff is gonna come. Sometimes you just gotta say "I'm all in!" BEFORE you feel like the path is made obvious. God doesn't lay out the complete game plan + THEN ask us if we're in. He demands our commitment FIRST, + then feeds us what we need to know as we go along.
Trust is a prerequisite to doing life with Him.
Before I can expect big things to happen in my life or to receive absolute clarity + direction on where He's leading me, I need to first commit to the small, everyday tasks. I need to be faithful in the day-to-day. I need to pay attention to His everyday commands. Things like...
-keeping my pride in check
-surrendering my time + resources to Him
-making sure my relationship with God my #1 priority
I know from past experience that when I do this--when I choose to be present in the now + do the daily well--that's when the big things come. That's when I realize where I should be headed. That's when my business booms. That's when change comes.
So friend, if you're feeling a lil' stuck like I have, how 'bout we try this method of stepping back + simply COMMITTING before our path is clear?
You in? I hope you are!
I'm cheering you on always!
