5 Strategies for Finding A Way Out of Your Predicament

  As we travel along this pathway called life, we sometimes find our way into unpleasant or confusing situations that are difficult to get out of or solve.  That is a predicament.  I loved some of the synonyms for this word, such as bind, box, catch 22, dilemma, rabbit hole, pickle, or jam.  They paint a clearer picture of what a predicament is. The Bible is full of these kinds of situations.  Let's look at a few and discover how they found their way out.   Don't panic!- Paul and Silas In Acts 16:25, Paul and Silas find themselves in...
