Sometimes it is ‘stuck in a rut’. Other times it is ‘stuck in the mud’. Or it can be ‘stuck with someone or something’. Then there is ‘getting stuck on what could or should have been’. We can also get stuck in something we do very well...but shouldn’t be doing it at all.
Growth is painful. Change is painful. But there is nothing as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong. Unknown
Consider the words of UCLA’s famously successful basketball coach, John Wooden, “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
ABIDING in the ‘stuckness’ doesn’t mean standing still in it...rather we are called to use it as a springboard toward God’s purpose for our lives. Relief from being stuck is found in these powerful words from Christ himself...
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who abide in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
When stuck, abide in Christ. Attach yourself to the perfect, good, and powerful vine of our heavenly Father. Wake up each day, open your heart to Him, and experience the plan He has for you. Remember: Jesus was stuck on the cross...we are the fruit of it.
PRAYER: I want to abide in you, Lord, as I navigate through my ‘stuckness’. Help me to remember that apart from you I am nothing. Thank you for allowing me to be grafted into your vine bringing me strength and purpose. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
LET YOUR STUCKNESS COUNT... ABIDE IN CHRIST!
