Our spiritual growth can sometimes seem to be caught up in a riptide when we see and feel no progress. We can be wrestling with something that God is trying to reveal to us (for our own good and for His glory) and feel as though there is no way we will ever grow past it. To get out of a riptide, you must swim to the side, or as one friend shared with me. Turn on your back and float. What if we just turned over onto our backs and submitted to His will and allowed Him to carry us gently back to shore?
Is there something that you feel STUCK in? Are you in a riptide? What if you took today to just turn onto your back and float. Let Him take you closer to shore. Trust in Him.
