Isn’t it so incredibly frustrating when we’re in a season of waiting on God, and even though we’re obeying Him and doing what He asks us to do, He still doesn’t give us what we’re waiting for? I mean, we’re doing what He wants, so why won’t He do what we want? I’ve gone through this myself, so if I may, I’d like to share what I’ve learned with you.
Comparison will keep us feeling stuck like nothing else because comparison can often lead to self-doubt, and once self-doubt has entered the picture, it’s difficult to focus on anything except the fears that begin entering our minds. When we compare ourselves to others and begin to entertain self-doubts, we move farther and farther away from living our calling and from dwelling in a place of peace, contentedness, joy, and gratitude because we’re too busy battling our fears to focus on anything else.
Have you ever felt like you were just spinning your wheels, unable to move forward past a certain point in your life or in your spiritual growth?
I know I have.
I’ve felt stuck, unmotivated, frustrated, and sometimes even confused as to why I couldn’t seem to get on with life or grow closer to the Lord. My life felt like it had come to a complete stop. My prayers seemed to just bounce off the ceiling.
If this sounds familiar to you, then read on, my friend. I’m sharing some questions that you can ask yourself as you think about your situation and brainstorm how you can make changes and begin to move forward. These questions can also be used as journal prompts or even prayer prompts!
If God’s been tugging at your heart and telling you He’s got something for you to do, take this quiz by reading the questions and answering yes or no to see if you’re really ready to pursue your calling, or if you need to put the brakes on and do a little more reflecting and preparing first. I’ve even included some bonus tips and bonus questions to help you along!
Have you ever had a time in your life when things just didn’t make sense? Like you thought you were headed in one direction, but then the door slammed in your face and you couldn’t understand why? Or you thought a situation would work out one way, but it ended up working out a completely different way? I know I sure have. In fact, I’ve had quite a few times in my life when that’s happened to me.
