A couple weeks ago I was talking, well I should really say complaining to my husband about feeling stuck. I was explaining that I could not shake this feeling of wanting to do more then just going to school and completing my placement. I was having such an urge to be finally done with school, that it was affecting how I was feeling in the morning. My husband stopped me and said something that was simple, but such a good reminder. He said “Maybe, this is where God wants you right now so that you will be ready soon for a new transition. Maybe this is a training ground, maybe you should keep your eyes opened for what God has planned for you.”
Wow! I had to stop and just think about that for a second. How right was he! I know that where I am now is where God wants me to be because He helped open the doors for me to get onto this path, how could I take that for granted? My husband’s words were just what I need to hear, it was a reminder for me to slow down because God had me where He wanted me to be for that time. I was so thankful for those words of encouragement that slowed down my moment of anxiety.
“You make known to me the path of life; you fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” Psalms 16:11
If you are feeling stuck with your life, reach out and pray to God. Ask others for guidance as well that you trust, and keep your eyes open to where God might be leading you next. God has an exciting and blessed plan for you. Remember that where you are now, may be the training ground you need to have the skills, tools, and faith to get to where you are going next.
Stand strong in your faith and look out for opportunities in your life that God has specifically placed for YOU.
Until Next Time,
