Sometimes traumatic experiences can be so traumatizing, that it stagnates one's growth. Stagnation is the inability to develop or advance. It may feel like things will never change, but all hope is not lost. A wise man once told me, 'Your situation is not an isolated one, you can move forward.' With confidence, I can tell you the same thing; you can move forward.
You Can Move Forward
"No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13). For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).
Move Forward, Be Encouraged, and Stay Yoked to Jesus
