Unstuck & Unstoppable

What Do I Do When I Am Stuck in My Career?


In one aspect of life or another, we’ve all dealt with feeling stuck. I, myself, have gone through it, but God helped me get out of it. One day, I was having a bit of a pity party for myself and I was crying to God rather than crying out for Him.
At one point, I asked the question you might be asking right now, “How do I get unstuck?” Then, I opened my One Year Bible to get my reading assignment done for the day: Acts 28.

My jaw dropped when I started reading, and then I got to verse 10: “…and when we were ready to sail, they furnished us with the supplies we needed.” That ignited something in me because I realized something important.
The Meaning Behind Those Words
What stuck out to me from that verse were the words “when we were ready.” You see, Paul had been shipwrecked on the island for three months at that point and he was a prisoner. He couldn’t just up and leave unless the Roman guards opened the doors, but they couldn’t do anything without God allowing it to happen.

That means that it was God who opened the door for Paul when His work there was done. I felt that God was talking to me through that verse and I was reminded that He always provides a way.

Now, that doesn’t mean you should just sit there feeling stuck and do nothing. Being passive in life means that you let anything happen to you and you become a victim. What it means is that we should play an active role and partner with God; be ready when the opportunities come our way.
The Solution Is in You
Change doesn’t start from the outside, it starts from within. So, if you’re feeling stuck in your career, you need to take a long look at yourself. Is this career helping you fulfill your true purpose? Are you even aware of what that is? If you’re not, it’s never too late to figure it out.

When you’re ready, God will provide a way for you to move on from that stuck state you’re in, but you have to be an active participant. With God’s help, you’re the only person who can bring change into your life.

Stop making excuses, that’s the only way to become unstuck. It takes courage to say “I can” instead of “I can’t”, or “It will work” instead of “It won’t work.” It takes courage to take responsibility for the way your life is going. But when you do, you’re showing God how ready you are for Him to make His next move and throw the next great opportunity your way.
Becoming unstuck in your career requires you not only to trust that God will provide but also to actively seek change. When something is not working for you, be brave enough to take action and the rewards will be great.
