Have you ever been in a place and you just KNOW that it is time to move on? Every been in a place and in the back of your mind you KNOW it is time to move on but because of duty, obligation, rebellion, depression, oppression, stubbornness, or connections you just stay and try to fight it out. It feels like what I think the Israelites may have experienced when wandering in the desert for forty years. It is like being told what you can and should have and seeing it in the horizon but never getting close enough to experience it for yourself. You feel STUCK, like you are just going through the motions but NEVER GETTING ANYWHERE!
I am just guessing! But I think people stay in Relationships, stay in Jobs, stay in Situations, much longer than they should. *(Uh, NO, I am NOT telling you to get a divorce! Other types of relationships are toxic!)*
We are sometimes trapped and held captive by shackles and chains that are not so much physical, but are mental and /or spiritual in nature. HOWEVER, this type of bondage can be very real and sometimes more dangerous than actual, physical bondage. It is hard knowing the abilities that you have, what you can do, and what you can contribute but to have no outlet for it. To have no place where you fit in and can be the YOU that you KNOW you can be.
Some people succumb to depression for issues like this. This is a very destructive place to find yourself in. Do what you need to do in order to get out ALIVE! If it means cutting ties, then do it. If it means changing your scenery, changing your job, or even moving to a new place DO IT! Your life could depend on it!
I heard a song by Tasha Cobbs in church on Sunday called “Break Every Chain”.
It was so simple but yet so powerful that I almost could not breathe. It struck a chord deep in me and all I could say was wow… This very same day the preacher (Pastor Chris Hill) spoke about being in the right place at the right time. WOW. Have you ever been somewhere but it was the wrong time, and you think to yourself, “Man, I missed it” or “Man, I am too early”. Have you ever been somewhere and you just KNEW it was the wrong place and you think to yourself, “Man I got to get out of here!” However, NOTHING compares to being IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME!
Cheers to you Friend and I hope and pray that you find YOUR right place and right time!
