When You Don’t Know What To Do . . .

Do you ever feel stuck, like there’s no way out? . . . when you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked? . . . when you’re tired and stressed and feel like giving up?shutterstock_1435012

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

Or maybe your parents are arguing a lot, and you fear they’ll get divorced. Maybe they’re even wanting you to take sides, and you feel stuck 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 recover.

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

So how do you get that answer from Him?

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

So what does that 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 and is saying, “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!
