How to Get out of a Rut

Copyright 2006 Daniel N Brown

Do you feel like you are caught up in the same old routine day after day and feel like you’re getting nowhere? Do you feel like you are capable of having more, doing more, and being more?

When we get the fact that God created us as human “beings” (not human “doings”), we will begin to understand that we must “be” in order to “do,” and we must “do” in order to have.

The first step is to “be,” and “being” involves change.

Unfortunately, most people hate change, and despise it with a passion. But, life is always in the process of change. There is nothing in life that is stagnant. We are either in the process of growth or in the process of decay.

Look what happens to a fruit after it reaches it’s ripest stage… it rots.

Change is the only thing that is constant in life. It’s always happening, and we are either moving forward in life or we are moving backward.

As things continue to change, we just have to accept this fact. And, not only that, but prepare for it. This way, we will be ahead of the curve instead of behind it.

If you truly want to enjoy an abundant and prosperous life you must embrace change. Life is all about change and there is no escaping it.

Now, the reason most people hate change is because they are insecure and do not trust themselves enough to handle it. But, God says, “Cast your care on Me, for I care for you” (1 Peter 5:7). He holds all of our tomorrows, and nothing in life can touch us, unless He allows it.

Change is good, and a person is the most happy when he or she is working toward a goal. That’s why “success” is not a destination to be reached. “Success” is the journey! And, along the journey there will obviously be change.

Who really wants to experience a life without a challenge? Be honest, how bored would you be with nothing to strive toward?

If the only difference between being in a rut and a being in grave is the dirt in your face, then I want out of the rut!

God wants us to prosper! But we will not prosper sitting around fearing the inevitable, which is “change.” It’s coming, so don’t wait for it, but go after it before it comes after you! Be ahead of the curve instead of behind it. Expect change, and prepare for it. In fact, desire it, and prosper.
