Many people whether Christian or otherwise, exist in a way of life they feel trapped in. It doesn’t matter whether it’s real or imagined; it is still a feeling of being trapped.
Their personal perception is stronger than reality.
So, how do you handle such a predicament?
Did you suddenly end up here or has it been gradual, over a period of time?
You see, it still doesn’t matter. The fact of the matter is, you’re feeling trapped and you don’t know what to do about.
You’ve talked to everybody that you know you can trust. You’ve done your research on the internet. You’ve lain awake at nights pondering the options. You’ve wondered how all this could have happened to you.
It doesn’t matter in what area you are feeling trapped in; it’s all the same.
Whether it’s your health, your marriage, your finances, your job, a relationship, no matter what it is, it has you bewildered, frustrated and depressed.
You keep asking yourself two questions; why me and how can I get out of this?
First of all you have to keep in mind two things truth and honesty.
There is a truth to your situation. You have to seek truth to discover the foundational reason for what you’re in.
Secondly, you have to remember to be honest with yourself and anyone else who is involved with you in your dilemma. This is not only therapeutic for you; it shows everyone else that you are authentic in your wanting to fix things.
Lying will only deceive yourself and cause others not to trust you or believe in you.
When you are honest with yourself and others then you will begin to see progress in breaking free from your bondage. This is the beginning of happiness for you and joy for others.
When you begin to seek the truth you will find why you were in this situation and how not to ever end up here ever again.
Jesus was so right on when he said the truth will set you free. You don’t have to be trapped. You don’t have to feel like someone has a pillow on top of your head and you’re smothering.
Admit to yourself and others your predicament and He will help you find your path to freedom. When you lean on the Lord Jesus Christ and quit relying on you, you’ll find your life to be much easier and definitely happy.
Or then again, you could ignore all the above and wait for the guys in the white coats.
It’s your choice.
That’s what I think about it.
