Transitions are all around. It’s a part of life. Some of life’s transitions can be overwhelming. I look back at some of the transitions I’ve been through in my life and can see how God was the only One who could have gotten me through that tough transition.
|One kind of transition: switching Underground trains in London (It’s a pretty simple one!)|
I’m going through another transition in life right now as I’m preparing for motherhood, and as Leon and I are preparing for parenthood together. Our little one has yet to grace us with his/her presence, but the preparation and getting my mind around motherhood is overwhelming. This being our first baby, there are a lot of unknowns in this transition.
I don’t do so well with unknowns. I’m prone to worry. I’ve learned and been constantly reminded that I need God’s strength to trust in Him while I wait out this transition. I’ve found myself crying out to God a lot lately.
In Psalm 4, God promises that He’ll hear us when we cry out to Him.
But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself;
the LORD hears when I call to him. Psalm 4:3 (ESV)
It’s also encouraging to know that God will give us rest and peace when we cry out to Him.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8 (ESV)
I’m really thankful that transitions in life remind us of our need to desperately run to Him!
