We All Have Choices
We give up our freedom and autonomy as adults and begin to develop stuck feelings and self-doubt when we stay in situations and mindsets that no longer serve us. What once felt good is now an addiction, and you know what they say about too much of a good thing…
Simply put, you’ve had enough of staying in the same place, and you’re ready to embark on something new! However, that good old Summer weather and “WE OUTSIDE!” culture may have you in a similar stuck situation because in your mind, freedom only meant getting away from that job or that ex – not getting away from the mindset and the thoughts that attracted you to those opportunities.
Save yourself the trouble of repeating cycles by getting honest about what triggers you to spiral, and resist the temptation to be led into another toxic situation that might take years to recover from.
You may be able to fool others, but every time you lie to yourself, you’ll be the only one paying for it.
Thank you for wooing me from the jaws of distress and into a space free of restriction through my gift of discernment. I will put my trust in you, your word, and your promises, while you teach me to have faith and stand firm in my belief of your power. Renew my mind and bless me with the strength to resist temptation in the midst of my weakness trying to prevail.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Has lingering self-doubt caused your boredom and dissatisfaction? In this song, a man laments about losing his wife over time. They were young falling in love, and, for comfort’s sake, chose to ignore the obvious growing pains until the relationship was in a state of disrepair.
While some situations may feel comfortable, we ultimately know it’s time to uproot yourself from places you can no longer grow.
