Truth in Transitions

Let me warn you, this is not one of those “I have it all figured out and I’m on the other side of this situation” kind of posts. This is more of a “I am right here in the middle of a mess” kind of posts. Today, I am in smack dab in the middle of a season of transition. Honestly, it’s a big one. My job situation is in question and my housing situation is in question. The Lord has been opening doors for me in my writing and speaking and coaching. And I have also been in a hard season in my thought life where I have felt very tormented. So, in many ways I have not had the best year.

Transitions are tricky. They can be really good or really bad. They can come at the perfect time or at the not so perfect time. They can be for the better or for the worse. All year, I have had a sense that transition was coming and boy has it come. It’s all coming at once. I’m not really sure where this transition falls. It’s wrought with deadlines and unanswered questions and not a strong sense of direction.

There are not a ton of things I’m sure of right now, so I have determined to lean on what I do know. Maybe you’re in a transition too and needing to be reminded of truths that will never change.

God is good.

    Transitions. Sometimes they are chosen. Sometimes not. When I relax (relax is my word for my current transition as a caregiver for my mom who has dementia) God is able to give me the peace to trust Him with the next step. It’s not easy for me, a doer, a Martha. Another firm word for me has been “hush.” Which for me means to listen first and speak last. God has so much to tell us if we listen. The last word I’ve embraced is wait. Wait for God. Wait for God to put others in my life to affirm me or share with me or perhaps take over for me! Allow God control and me to enjoy His mercy and grace. God is so good.
