Will You Join Us?

life unstuck intro

Do you ever feel like there’s something missing? Like you’re just going through the motions of life, but never moving forward?

I have. My path was so comfortable and worn, I didn’t realize I was moving in a circular pattern. I held onto the familiar because it was what I knew, but didn’t realize what we know is not always what’s best.

Sometimes the familiar can hold us back.

When we make the decision to follow Christ, we are told to live in freedom. Paul states in Galatians, “It is for freedom that he set is free.” (Galatians 5:1) But instead, we often live our lives stuck.

We feel trapped by fear, insecurity, and self-doubt. We wonder why our lives aren’t moving toward our dreams and goals and why we’re unable to embrace the full life promised in scripture. Is a life fulfilled even possible?

I believe it is. I believe it’s possible to move forward to and grow more like the God who created us in his image each day, but it takes willingness. We must not only desire change, but be willing to let go of the negative thought patterns and habits which keep us from getting there.

Over 31 Days in October, some of my favorite writers and I will talk about some of the inclinations which keep us stuck. All of us are still works in progress.

But what each of us has in common is willingness. Our souls want nothing more than to live the life God has called us to and to reach the end with the confirmation, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

We believe when Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full,” he wasn’t just coining a nice phrase, but meant it. (John 10:10)

We will take hard looks at our lives and the things we held onto for too long, and the steps we took to release them. We will dig deep into the Word and study what God says about fear, hurt, insecurity and comparison.

And then we will uncover the promises. Promises of a life not lived cowering behind strongholds that threaten to ruin us, but of peace, freedom, and a full life. We are convinced that even in the midst of struggles and moments when we cry out, “Why?,” God is refining us and has the best plans for our lives.

Will you journey with us through thirty-one days in October as we dive into this topic? We don’t promise it will be easy, but we believe it will be worth it. As we pray to the God who can move mountains with one tiny seed of faith, we know anything is possible.
