On today’s faith-centered podcast, I talk about what can get us going in circles, and what we can do to break out of those ruts.
Everyone I know wants to move forward in their life. They want to achieve their goals and they desire to realize their dreams.
But what gets in the way?
Why do so many people get stuck – tripping up on the same challenges over and over again and ultimately not being able to realize the very lives they long for.
I think the Bible may have some clues about what works… and what doesn’t.
As I continue to read through the Bible…
I’m drawn to the story of the Israelites.
The nation of Israel, beloved of the Lord, repeatedly makes the same mistakes over and over again. They seem oblivious to their poor choices and to the blessings they forfeit by going in circles.
Well, maybe I’m drawn to their story because it’s my story.
Actually, I think that this idea of going in circles, being stuck, struggling to get free, and then finding oneself right back in the same pit is a theme for a lot of people.
So on today’s podcast, I exam what the Israelites didn’t do and contrast that with what we what we should do.
God made it very clear what he wanted the Israelites to do. They just never got around to doing it.
Our problem is probably not lack of information but lack of activation.
My prayer is that today’s podcast motivates you to action.
I pray that you would use the knowledge you already possess, take the risk to move into new territory, and allow God’s grace to cover you as you journey.
I can’t promise that breaking out your rut will be easy.
But I can promise you that it will be worth it.
