When You Don’t Know What To Do . . .

Have you ever gotten stuck, feeling there’s no way out? . . . when you’ve tried absolutely everything and nothing’s working? . . . when you’re tired and stressed and feel like giving up?shutterstock_1435012

Maybe your best friend is avoiding you. Something’s definitely wrong. But when you try to bring it up she acts like nothing is.

Or are your parents not getting along and arguing a lot, and you fear they’ll get a divorce. It’s like they’re even wanting you to take sides and you feel stuck right in the middle.

Or maybe you didn’t make the school cheer team when that’s all you’ve been doing is practicing. You’ve had your heart set on it for days and don’t know if you’ll ever recover.

Well, if you ever feel stuck, know you’re not alone. We all feel that way at times. But what’s most important is knowing that God is always with you, and He has the answer you need.

So how do you get that answer?

First, God wants you to pray. He wants you to give the problem to Him. Pour out your heart to Him, and give Him every detail. He already knows what you’re going through, but He wants you to tell Him anyway.

Next, listen to what He’s telling you. Just be still and listen. He may give you the answer right then, but if not, He will.

And finally, while you wait, trust Him. He loves you and wants the best for you and knows what you want and need.

Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

Now what does that really mean? To not try and figure it out yourself. He wants you to look to Him and lean on Him. Remember, He’s the Creator of the universe and knows everything about everything! He knows everything you’re going through. All He’s saying is, “Wait on me,” and “Trust me,” and He will answer your prayer.

So what do you do when you don’t know what to do? Pray to the God who loves you. Then listen to Him and trust Him. He’ll give you the answer you need!
