You keep doing the same things over and over again. You get up, you go to work, you come home, and you go to bed. The next day you repeat the cycle. Over and over again, the cycle repeats. It’s as if you are stuck on the merry-go-round of life. Will it ever stop? Will the horse you are riding on ever dislodge from the carousel allowing you to explore new territory? Will you ever get out of the rut you’re in?
We’ve all faced this feeling at one time or another. While routine is good, I don’t think we were meant to feel stuck. I believe we are meant to feel excitement for life. If you feel like your stuck in a rut, here are some ideas to help you break free.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
a father’s delight is behind all this.
