Episode 140: When It Feels Like Rock Bottom

Uncategorized Mar 20, 2024

What do you do when you feel you have nowhere left to GO? 

When nothing you are doing seems to be working any longer - in fact it’s only making things worse?

When you want to burn it all down and start over but you feel like you’ve got to fight for your life? 


Today's episode is inspired by some heartbreaking conversations I have had lately with men and women who have reached out to me. I have heard things like


“I don’t even want to be alive right now.”

“If I didn’t have my wife and kids waiting for me at home, depending on me - I would be checking out right now.”

“I have nowhere left to turn. Everyone I once thought I could rely on has turned on me or left the building”


Guys, this is not ONE  person. This is multiple people and conversations in a very short time. 

Seems to be a theme right now. Many are really struggling, feeling trapped by old lives and challenges are hitting them like waves —legal battles, business downturns, personal struggles—you name it. They're at a breaking point, feeling overwhelmed and alone.


The GOOD News? This is a critical moment to birth their new life and it’s also temporary.

The BAD news. It is not pretty and feels like it drags on forever. 


While I believe we all have seasons of breakdown that lead to our greatest breakthroughs - I also KNOW that we are in the midst of a massive divine re-orchestration. What do I mean by this? What I am seeing right now, not only in the clients I am working with, but in the collective, is that everything that is NOT a fit for our future calling, vision and mission is getting deconstructed. We are in a NEW ERA and anyone holding on to the things of the past will find themselves in a loop of endless suffering and frustration.


I've been there, feeling like everything is falling apart, like I'm on the brink of losing it all. And the truth is - for the life I have today, I DID need to release all the old that was misaligned. The perceived ‘loss’ was actually a huge blessing that was making room for the new!


In this episode of the Breaking Chains Podcast, we talk about:


  • What do you do in those moments of intense pressure?
  • Why fighting harder, clinging to trying to the old, controlling things never works
  • What to do instead - seems totally counterintuitive!
  • GOD has a completely different vantage point of our situation than we do. 
  • The concept of divine reconstruction and its role in personal transformation
  • Encouragement for those feeling lost and the promise of renewal
  • The power of divine favor and the unpredictability of life's journey
  • He knows what HE is doing, he’s always on time, never late and knows exactly what we need - and how to deliver it! 
  • Setbacks are always part of our deepest growth and often the launching pads for the NEXT Chapter of our lives!


Looking back, I can see how each trial, each setback, has led me to where I am today. It's been a journey of transformation, of refining my character, and finding strength I didn't know I had. And I believe the same is true for anyone going through tough times right now.


So if you're feeling overwhelmed, if it seems like everything is falling apart, just know that this isn't the end of your story. It's a new beginning, a chance to become the person you're meant to be, not the one everyone else wants you to be. 


Trust in the process, lean on your faith, and remember that you're not alone
