From Here to There

I’m feeling stuck in neutral lately – my job, my home life, my relationship with God, my attitude…

I keep longing for “there” when I’m stuck “here”. Stuck is really an unfair word to use. I’ve put myself here. I have done certain things to maintain this stagnant pursuit of “what could be”.

Now is the time I ask myself, “what lie have I exchanged for the truth?” And it always come down to believing that there’s something outside of myself that I need. Security, money, approval, promotion, control.

Jesus is enough. He is enough for me now. He is enough for me “there”. He is enough for me “here”. He has already accomplished and given me one thing that I truly need. I should be able to live in the joy that revelation brings. I should be able to lay down those things that so easily ensnare me.

  1. Hey Judi –
    It’s a hard place to be in cause you’re never quite sure how to pick up and move. May I recommend the book ‘One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are’ by Ann Voscamp. I think it might be a great starting place for you. I’ll be praying for you.
    Jess
