Finding Your Next Move

Sometimes in life, you’ll feel stuck. It will appear that nothing is working, and you will be unable to proceed with your work. Sometimes it feels like the entire universe has conspired against you. In these situations, emotional responses may be understandable, but they are completely unnecessary. What you should be doing is determining your next step. Find your next move. Embracing this mindset will allow you to navigate adversity with resilience, shifting your focus to actionable solutions. In times of stagnation, the need is clear: it’s not about the setback, but about figuring out the next step forward.

The first step is to acknowledge that God is always in control. Nothing surprises Him, and you must believe that everything will work out in the end for your good. Draw strength from 1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭(ESV‬‬), “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” The key is to keep your heart steadfast in faith.

With your heart in place, now let us find your next move. You have to review the facts and circumstances without any emotional sentiment. What exactly is the nature of the situation, and why does it appear to be difficult? Things are rarely as bad as they appear on first glance. So, as you write down what is going on, you will start to see things in a new light. At this point, you should be able to determine what (legal) moves you have available, just like a chess grandmaster. If nothing is obvious, it may be a sign that you need counsel. There’s always safety in counsel.
