#107: How to Navigate a “Midlife Crisis”

November 5, 2022

Have you been feeling like you’re behind in life, running out of time, and lacking what you need to be truly successful?

I’d been feeling this a bit recently, and I decided to take some focused time to sit with the Lord on it. I’m approaching my 49th birthday, and it’s recently felt to me like I’ve been wading through a bit of a “midlife crisis” season . . . for the better part of a decade! I knew I needed a good old fashioned, “come to Jesus” journaling session to get to the bottom of what was really going on here, and once I began downloading what I was hearing from the Lord, I just knew it would make a helpful podcast episode for all of us.

One of the first things I heard the Lord say clearly was: “There is never an appropriate time for a midlife crisis.” Wow! So then I had to know: If there’s never an appropriate time for something like this, then what is this weight I am currently experiencing, and how do I come out from under it? How can I get moving in a way that is infused with hope, faith and effectiveness that will bring ME a sense of fulfillment and YOU all the glory?

On this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast, I’m sharing all the things I learned as a result of that session with the Lord, as well as the things I learned as I faithfully walked out the words He’s spoken to me over the past few months. So if you’re ready to know how you can break free of those “I’m running out of time and I’m never going to make it” thoughts, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!
