Hi, i'd like to say goodmorning and i hope your doing alright during all the things going on in the world. I have a question and would like your opinion. In a hypathetical situation like a man or group of people stranded on an island and cannot get off although they are trying everyday, its been years and maybe a few decades..why would they be in that situation? is that where God needed them to be for a serious reason? This is more of a metaphor to compare to some others lives where they feel stuck, in a rut, hopeless ect.... ` CJ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Not knowing all about what you are meaning, I can relate to this from my own experience. We need God to get us out of the ruts of this life. One man said that a rut is a grave with the end open. Use the open end to reach out to God. Without God we cannot move forwards.
We come to God through his son Jesus, who took our sins to the cross. Trust in Jesus puts us into a new covenant relationship with God. He becomes our way and our strength and all things are possible through him. If we are trusting God we know we are where he wants us. As Paul said:
Phil 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
