Are You Stuck In The Middle Of It

Are you stuck in the middle of a trial, or are you going through a trial? When we are faced with situations in our life that are challenging, we sometimes get stuck in the middle focusing so hard on the circumstance that we are not looking for the other side anymore. When you continue to go through the same challenges day after day, then maybe you are stuck in the middle of the muck. You need to pick up your head and look to the other side where the LORD is waiting for you to come on through. Quit staring down at your feet (your situation) and look up to see the answer on the other side.

When we are around negative people all day long, they will tend to rub off on us, negativiity is like an air borne disease. It spreads like wildfire. Have you ever seen a wild fire burning. The flames jump from tree to tree and quickly flare up into a roaring fire. That is how negativity does. It will jump from one person to the next until everyone is starting to complain, whine, and be negative about everyone or every situation. It will burn out of control very quickly. The only way to escape it, is to walk away from it. Don't stand there mesmerized by the flames, in other words don't stand around thinking on your problem. When you do, you are giving your problem power over you. Just like being around negative people, don't walk, RUN.

Remember you are a CHRISTIAN, you do not have to stay stuck in the middle. GOD says, He will bring you through it. He says, He will not give you more than you can handle. In other words, He has given you the power to overcome your problem and to walk out on the other side and not look back. AMEN!

PSALM 40 v 1-4a...........I waited patiently for the LORD; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth--Praise to our GOD; Many will see it and fear, and will trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust........

You see GOD gives you a new song to sing. Not one of dispair, but one of thanksgiving and praise. Shout unto the LORD today your new song, and trust HIM to bring you through and not leave you in the middle of it. AMEN!
