Snares of Life

Have you ever felt like you were going nowhere?  Whether you felt like there are no opportunities for advancement in your job or you’re just stuck in a ‘boredom rut?’  

It’s definitely problematic in all of our lives, to get stuck in this crevasse where you can’t wiggle your way out.  You’re trapped.  Your lost.  It’s like we’ve stepped into a snare or trap and cannot get out.  Even though life has the tendancy to be difficult and throwing us off the path, we must follow our hearts, have faith in God to lead us in the correct direction.  It’s not easy, I know.

After graduating college, I was stuck in a rut.  As many of you may know, once you’ve accomplished one big step in your life, there’s a short waiting period until you move onto the next step.  And you have to apply to hundreds of jobs in the process.  All the while, not having anything to fall back on, besides your accomplishment of graduating, you don’t have any job stability.

But with patience and perseverance,  I didn’t obtain one, but two jobs!  One was in a career field I was very familiar with and the other I wasn’t.  And the second was fitness.

Most of the time, our plans never go the way we want.  New opportunities create brand new perspectives on future career options.  But, it’s inevitable we’re all going to deviate from our initial plans.  It’s a fact of life.  Whether we may see one of these snares in front of our path, we may step into it without even knowing.  We must try to continue on.

Maybe something has been placed in front of you to take advantage of.  Maybe you’ve stepped into one of these snares along your path and you don’t know what to do.  It doesn’t matter who you are, you must find something to make you go on.  What motivates you?  What/who encourages you?  The great thing about being a believer is that Faith doesn’t mean we know where we’re going or being led, but it loves and knows the One Who is leading.  He will provide a path, even if that means deviating from you own.
