No-Win Situations

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of the mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:27

No-Win Situations

Sometimes we feel powerless for one reason or another. You may be in a situation where other people have power over you. You may feel that you’re trapped by the demands of others and that there’s no way to please them all. It’s a double bind: to please one is to disappoint another. Sometimes when we feel stuck and frustrated with our relationships, we look for a measure of
control by escaping through our addictive behaviors.

When you’re caught in no-win situations, don’t run away through your addictive or compulsive escape hatches. At times like these God is there, and he’ll listen to your woes. He hears your cries and is willing to give you hope for the future.

Admit to God that you’re powerless; surrender to Him and allow His Holy Spirit to invade your life, it’s the power you need to move forward.

If you board the wrong train, it is no use running along the corridor in the other direction. – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
