We get stuck in a rut sometimes. Rhythms of our lives become engrained and it is hard to break free of it. Old habits, old routines, old thoughts, old norms, old patterns repeated again and again. How do we move forward? How do we grow?
The only way to break free from our old ways and embracing the new is to let go of the old and be intentional going forward. We have this great ability of starting something new and then when it gets hard we return to our old familiar ways almost like they are a comfy blanket wrapped around us keeping us in the rut.
Lockdown has forced new patterns upon us and some of us are longing for the old back. Is there a way to move forward, creating a new path? Is there a way through that brings us through without reverting to the old? I believe God wants us to live lives that are full of life, not constantly retreating backwards but moving forwards with purpose driving us onward. God creates ways where there seems to be no way. If we ask God will reveal the way to us.
Whatever rut you are stuck in, there is a way through. There is new life just around the corner all you need to do is keep moving forward to reach it.
