God is very interested in the lives of His children. He cares about even the littlest details from your breakfast to that giant career move. If you are feeling stuck at your job or in life, remember to involve God. God doesn’t only care about your service to Him, He is also very interested in the secular bits of your life.

When you’re feeling stuck at your job, it is important you consider these few things:

– Go back to the drawing board – God’s drawing board. 

Try to figure out why you feel stuck. Getting to the root of this feeling would help you understand how best to deal with it. For instance, do you feel stuck because everyone else has gone ahead? Then, you need to remember that your journey is yours and not anyone else.  Are you in the will of God? Is this what God would have you do at this stage of your life? If the answer is no, maybe it is time to courageously walk out of it.

Sometimes, it is just not yet time for you to move. God would have you at this job for a while longer. In this case, it becomes important to re-direct your focus to God and work at your job as unto God (Colossians 3:23). If you don’t know why you feel stuck at your job, you might want to seek the face of God over the matter and ask Him to align you in His will.

– See work from God’s perspective.

Work is biblical. From the days of Adam, God said to him to tend to the garden. Work can be a form of worship as well (1 Corinthians 10:31). Seeing work from this perspective will help you re-focus on what is important – working for the glory of God, whether it be in a bank, hospital or start-up.

– Understand your job as part of your journey.

Sometimes many people feel stuck because work has become their all – in some cases, an idol. Your workplace shouldn’t be the end, it should be a means to an end as you ought to constantly be on a journey of improvement as a human being and also as a child of God. This can be hard when the workplace is toxic or stressful. However, you have to make up your mind to progress in your career, irrespective of the nature of your workplace. You can participate in trainings, online classes, attend conferences and build your professional network. This way, even if much isn’t happening at your workplace, you are progressing and improving yourself.

– Rest.

This part is often the difficult bit. It is beneficial to know how to balance your work and efforts with your faith and trust in God. God calls us to trust Him deeper daily, but He has also given us minds to make plans and execute. Once you are able to commit your work and plans to God and also do the work, rest. Rest, knowing that all there is to do has been done and God is able to complete what He started. Rest would help you ward off anxiety, fear and all those ill feelings. Then, you are able to re-direct your energy to growing and developing yourself.

– Move!

Many times Christians use ‘waiting on the Lord’ as a license for wasting time or being unproductive. When you understand what God would have you do, even if your current situation doesn’t match up, keep moving! When Abraham left his house and everything familiar, God hadn’t given him clear directions and instructions about the promised land.  Abraham starting moving, even without knowing or seeing it all because He had unwavering trust in the God who had told Him to move.

As you wait on God to get you out of this stuck job or phase of your life, don’t stay idle. Keep moving, learning and growing. Keep applying and knocking on doors. Don’t give up because you don’t see the promise of God yet.

– Finally and most importantly, talk to God about it.

All of this may seem like a lot when you are feeling stuck at a job. However, when you talk to God, He begins to show you how He would have you live through this season and to inspire your heart on the things you need to do. He shows you the bigger picture and you are able to remain focused, regardless of how your job or life looks at the moment.

In conclusion, nothing lasts forever. Have faith that this too shall pass and while you’re waiting, remain connected to God, be focused on the big picture and don’t stop working.
