Transitions are not always easy. Leaving what is familiar and stepping into what may not be fully known can create some anxiety. I know that when we left Texarkana, Texas after 20 years was not the easiest thing I have ever done, but I am so glad I was surrendered to HIS will and purpose. I have lived long enough to realize that life is filled with transitions. Not only are those transitions associated with movement from a familiar place into a new one, but also in our day to day activities: school, jobs, relationships, economic status, etc.
THE ONLY THING that can make these transitions easier is through focusing on that which does not change. For us to keep our bearings in life and remain on the right path, we have to fix our eyes on that which remains constant.
Malachi 3:6 says: For I am the Lord, I change not…
Hebrews 13:8 says: Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever!
Consistency all the way! We even sometimes see people around us change and so we don’t always know what to expect. But that is not the case with God. I’m thankful for something I can count on in the midst of a constantly changing world.
Some of the transitions we go through are because of changes that we NEED to make. We are still in the process of becoming what God wants us to be. However, when it comes to HIM and HIS will there is no need for change because perfection cannot be improved upon.
As we go through transitions in our life, no matter how small or how great, remember that God is still God, Jesus is still the Lord of lords and King of kings, and the truth remains the foundation for supporting and building up our life.
If you will keep this focus, you will not have to much anxiety about changes in life.
HE NEVER CHANGES! Keep your eyes on HIM!
