But...we have to do the work.
Nothing valuable comes free.
The scripture I referenced was Habukkuk 2.2. I love that verse, because it reminds me, once again, that God will orchestrate and direct our paths. He will do that when we seek Him. He gives us free will to make our own decisions.
Be smarter than I was when I sat around and waited for manna to fall from the sky. I got nothing waiting for God to work on my behalf when I wasn't willing to get off my duff and start something.
|Ask for God to send help and receive it. |
Stuck in the rut of nothingness. Stuck in the mundane of life. That's not a good place. It's a lonely, sad place. I don't recommend it, because it's a place where we don't ask for help from people who are willing to help us. It's a place of depression even if we're going to work every day, taking care of our family, doing well in school, or going to church. It's a place of just going through the motions. It's different than being set-aside to hear from God (that's different, because we're not stuck in this case, it's just the opposite).
Being in a rut is when you don't think anybody knows what you're going through. People do know, because they either went through it too or are going through it at the same time. They will help plow you out if you will trust them. God will show you who they are, don't worry.
My point is, I lived in that place before and I stopped up my mission. Now, I'm sharing my testimony to tell you that you don't have to go through the same thing. When life happens to you, don't lay around and just wish for things to be different.
Get up and make them different. God is waiting.
