Have you ever felt stuck? Unable to move forward, side-to-side, or even backwards?
- be unable to progress with a task or find the answer or solution to something.
- be or remain in a specified place or situation, typically one perceived as tedious or unpleasant.
- be unable to get rid of or escape from.
It is a most uncomfortable feeling. When I was a teenager I used to have a recurring dream where I couldn’t move or talk during the most crucial times… A teacher asking me a question… I have to deliver a message… or I have to make a decision. It is a psychological battle when you know you are supposed to be moving or doing said task BUT you can’t seem to make progress.
Last night I dreamed that I was chasing something and during my pursuit I realized I was being pursued. Initially my pursuit was fueled by me wanting to capture what I was chasing. It soon changed when I realized that what was chasing me appeared to be getting closer. My focus became divided. I wanted to get away from my pursuer equally as much as I wanted to capture what I was going after. I realized that what I was chasing attempted to get away by climbing up a huge tree. Before I realized it, I started flying to get closer. I was surprised that I had this ability. I could feel and hear the wind created by my arm movements. I began to soar but I looked back and realized that what was chasing me could fly as well. This confused me a bit and I instantly felt defeated. I began to feel unable to move forward…. STUCK therefore what I pursued got away.
This dream says sooo much to me BUT the MAIN thing I want to bring out is that often times we don’t realize or accept what we can do IN CHRIST. We forget. We forget what the Lord will allow us to do and accomplish in Him. What is just as important — we also forget that the enemy of our soul is in constant pursuit of us to get us off our game.. to keep our eyes off Jesus which will allow us to achieve the things He has destined for us to accomplish!
My goal for the month of August is RESTART! I want to talk about the pit falls and challenges that attempt disrupt our pursuit of our divine assignment as well as a ton of other things. My desire is to be an encouragement to others as well as MYSELF!
I plan to incorporate blog post as well vlogs each day in August. So, once again I invite you to take this 31 day journey of discover with me.
