It can be a frustrating and overwhelming experience to feel stuck.
It can make you feel like there is no way out. If you feel stuck, try using some of the items below, it will help you figure out a way to “break free” and allow Jesus to help you overcome being stuck!


Prayer is one of the most powerful tools that we have as Christians. When we’re feeling stuck, blocked, not helped, or alone, it’s essential to take time to pray. Prayer is an opportunity to connect with Jesus, to share our burdens, and to ask for guidance. When we pray, we’re reminded that we’re not alone and that God is with us every step of the way.

When we pray, we’re also reminded of the promises that Jesus has made to us. In John 14:27, Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” This promise reminds us that no matter what we’re facing, Jesus is with us and will provide us with the peace that we need to move forward

2. Read the Bible

The Bible is full of stories of people who have faced difficult situations and have found a way through them with the help of God. When we read the Bible, we’re reminded of the power of God and the strength that he provides us. The Bible is also a source of comfort and encouragement.

For example, in Psalm 23:4, it says, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” This passage reminds us that no matter what we’re facing, we’re not alone, and God is with us. Reading the Bible can help us to find the strength and courage that we need to face our challenges.

3. Talk to someone

If you are feeling stuck, blocked, not helped, or alone, it’s essential to reach out to someone for help. This can be a friend, family member, or a pastor. Talking to someone can help us to gain a different perspective on our situation and can provide us with the support that we need to move forward.

It’s important to remember that you don’t have to face your challenges alone. There are people in your life who care about you and want to help you. Many people don’t have anyone that really cares for them, if this is you, pray Jesus help me discover and bond with people who will really care for me. When YOU reach out to others, you will be reminded that you not alone, and you can find the strength that you need to face your challenges.

4. Serve others

Serving others is a powerful way to shift focus from your problems to the needs of others. When you serve others, you’re reminded that you’re not alone, and that there are people in the world who are facing challenges that are far greater than your own. Serving others can also provide you with a sense of purpose and meaning.

Jesus modeled the importance of serving others when he washed the feet of his disciples. In John 13:14-15, Jesus says, “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” By serving others, you’re following in the footsteps of Jesus.

5. Focus on What You Can Control

When you’re feeling stuck, blocked, not helped, or alone, it can be easy to focus on the things that are outside of your control. This can lead to feelings of helplessness and despair. Instead, try to focus on the things that you can control.

Make a list of the things that you can do to improve your situation. This might include taking small steps to move forward, such as reaching out to a job coach or working on your resume. By focusing on what you can control, you can start to feel more empowered and less helpless.

6. Practice Self-Care

When you’re facing challenges, it’s important to take care of yourself. This might include getting enough rest, eating well, and exercising regularly. You might also want to consider engaging in activities that you enjoy, such as reading, hiking, or painting.

Taking care of yourself can help you to feel more resilient and better able to cope with the challenges that you’re facing. It can also help to improve your mood and reduce feelings of anxiety or depression.
