Sometimes I feel stuck – you know like you are working on that math problem and you can’t quite figure out the next step. I’m asking myself what am I supposed to do next. How do I get unstuck? 

Besides the Bible (Basic Instruction Before Living Earth) our life doesn’t come with a play-by-play book with Mapquest directions that says turn left or right – you have reached your next destination. Wouldn’t that be great?

Instead, life is full of choices with consequences and or rewards depending on our decisions. But what about when you feel stuck?

Of course, I’ve felt the overwhelming stress of feeling stuck several times. I share below some practical advice I use when I feel stuck. I hope it helps you and you share with someone else!

My Unstuck List…

  1. Make a list of 25 things I’m grateful. Nothing shifts my heart posture like gratefulness.
  2. I go read old blog posts or words of encouragement I wrote or that God gave me.
  3. I also read my favorite chapter – Psalms 139. Pause and go read it now, come back, and let me know what you think.
  4. I go talk to God – whether it is journaling praying or talking out loud. Sometimes my prayers are silent. God hears my written prayers and he knows my thoughts – so he can still speak to my heart.
  5. After speaking to God, I usually have a next step and I work on that. So if the step is to work on a book – I’ll try to make that task more actionable by dividing it into smaller steps and making a checklist. I love checking things off a list because it makes me feel accomplished. 😂
  6. If I still feel stuck, I’ll take a walk. God is always speaking even through creation. While on the walk I’ll listen to my favorite worship songs or turn on one of my favorite speakers – Pastor Robert Madu or Dr. Darius Daniels. My personal favorites.
  7. If this persists the next day, I’ll start back over at step one and focus on releasing my worries to God.

“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” James‬ ‭1‬:‭5‬ ‭NLT‬‬
