God was speaking to me this morning and it shed some light on alot for me and the season I am in. I hope this helps someone else out too.
The places you are stuck in right now are but for a moment. If you look at the bigger picture it will help you get passed the moments that seemed difficult. But remember the moments are now passed so they are past tense.
Now you decide, will you let the past moments tell you how to feel or where to go next? If the last step you took landed you in a mud puddle and there are two puddles next to each other will your next step be toward the second puddle? Are you able to take a step that won’t land you in the second one? Sometimes taking just a few seconds to ask the Holy Spirit where to step next is the difference to having two muddy feet versus one.
And even if you do stumble in to the puddle what will be your response? Will you get angry, sad or depressed? Or will you rejoice, laugh, sing and learn something for when the next puddles come? Puddles will always come. You learn and grow from the stuck places that maybe messy like a mud puddle, and with that accept God’s grace and mercy. Another way is to let studying God’s word prepare you and teach and guide you in how to get over or around them anyway you can. Remember though either way, we are blessed, loved and accepted. You are a treasure in the eyes of Christ.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
