Trusting Through Transition!
Are you struggling through some transition today? Transitions are rarely easy! They mean one part of your life's story is over, and a new one is about to begin. Our faith is tested in transition as fear fights to creep in. Life is full of temporary peaks and valleys we must journey through to mature and grow in our faith. The territory is unknown, so we often focus on the transition rather than the destination. We often question God's providence during these trying seasons. As I thought about this, I was reminded of God's directions to His people in this passage. They listened but didn't seem to hear.
Friends, God often says things we ignore or don't want to hear. The disciples heard Jesus tell them what would happen to him, but they didn't hear. If the passing years have taught me anything, life's occasional transitions are necessary for our spiritual growth. When we fight them, we fight the future God has in mind for us. Life's transitions help prepare us for change! They stretch and grow our faith and trust in God's plan for our lives. These passing seasons may take longer than we want, but we must forge ahead! So, hold fast to your faith and trust and obey God through life's transitions; He is with us and promises never to leave or forsake us!
Onward and Upward,
