Did you ever suddenly get the sense that you are doing your life completely wrong?
Oh, it may not seem like it is. You are doing everything you think you should be doing. You are a responsible citizen and pay your bills and obey the laws. You are a responsible employee and try to do your best at work. You try to be a good husband and provide, a good father and guide and listen and transport around, and try to be a reasonable Christian (well, probably not all that good). Your house is relatively not falling over and your oil is changed on a semi-regular basis.
And yet it completely feels like you are doing your life wrong somehow. There is a gap, a grinding going through the motions, a hollowness that stares down the quiet corridors of your mind. The harmony of what your life is supposed to sound like is off key but you cannot find the source of the divergence.
It is not quite a rut, because you realize that doing anything else would probably start to create issues as they would most likely be irresponsible (and possibly bad) decisions. It is not as simple as a change in job or church, because in reality there is nothing really wrong with any of the things you are doing in the life.
You ask yourself the opposite question: what would life look like if I were doing it right? You do not come up with an answer you can use, however. It seems like life would look a lot like it looks right now, except that it would be somehow different. What the different is you cannot tell, only that it would be different.
Do you scale things back? Do you simply ignore the feeling and hope it goes away? Do you try making some kind of significant change - which possibly seems irresponsible - in the hopes that this will shock the system into something else?
Or do you simply do nothing and live with the feeling, accepting it as the price of having a life which seems like it is going well, even if it feels like you are completely doing it wrong?
