Knowing we are stuck, and allowing ourselves to stay there, is one of the most uncomfortable positions possible. It can bring unhealthy attitudes, indecisiveness, exhaustion, depression, and anxiety. Why do we allow this to continue?
Because we like the EASY button!
It is easier to do what we’ve been doing, no matter how uncomfortable we are, than to seek answers and change. We work all day at a job we may not like, raise kids that take all our energy, and manage active lifestyles. We don’t want to add anything to an already hectic life. So we continue what we know and believe that is all there is.
Except…when God has a plan for us, He doesn’t allow us to remain complacent.
We become very uncomfortable with who we are, where we are and what we are doing. It doesn’t matter how many new clothes we buy, what style of hair we change to, where our tropic vacation is, or what job we jump to in order to feel better. Those are all temporary fixes we use to numb our inability to find answers.
Be open to changing our understanding of who we are meant to be. Go where we are needed. Stop allowing a mundane existence that doesn’t bring joy, meaning and peace.
