Freedom. Truth. Marriage.

My thoughts on these things. Feel free to leave feedback.

Stuck in a Rut

“Don’t you remember what you used to be like? Why, back then you habitually walked around trapped and unable to get off the track you were stuck on — totally unaware that you were being dominated and manipulated by the constantly fluctuating thinking of the day, by the whims of the times, and by whatever society was giving its approval to at that moment….” Ephesians 2:2 (from “Sparkling Gems From the Greek,” Rick Renner)

Who feels like this? Like they’re being influenced and flowing along by the ideas of society, pop culture, political fights, news media, and what ever else seems good at the time? Who feels like they are filling that hollow, numb spot in their heart with… anything?

How would it feel to be free from that? The feeling of being full of life, firmly established, so that no matter what craziness our culture comes up with next, we know we’re okay.

By God’s grace we were lifted up out of those ruts and through Him can walk through this life fully alive and stable (Eph 2:4-10). stuck-in-a-rut

  1. Hey there! “Your wife sent me” in Facebook over to your FB page where I picked up this post. Yes, indeed, I have been stuck in that rut and picked up the things of the day. That’s why I’m so glad I started seriously studying God’s Word … makes a huge difference! Thanks for your post!

  2. Thanks for visiting and commenting! God’s Word is good! Glad you enjoyed the post and hope the others bless you too.
