the process or a period of changing from one
state or condition to another.
This morning as I was getting ready for church the Lord began to speak to me about this next season of my life and the period of transition that we are in as a family. If you’ve been reading my blog lately, you know that our family is having to move. Even though I have been overwhelmed by the magnitude of the tasks that I face each day with packing, looking for a place to live, and selling our current home, the Lord has been so faithful! Through it all, I am at rest and have so much peace. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have moments where I freak out in the flesh. But my soul is at rest. Even though this is a very unfortunate situation for our family, I know that God is in it and that it all will work out.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (Romans 8:28-NLT)
In my quiet time this morning (all 10 minutes of it while I was getting the kids ready for church!), the Lord showed me a picture of a door. The door was old and it was closed. But I noticed that the door was surrounded by LIFE. There were green vines and shrubs growing all around it and on it, as well as bright blossoms. The Lord told me, “This is the door of transition”. Our family is in a period of transition and things as we know it are about to change. The home that we have lived in for 16 years, raised our children in, and that my husband’s handiwork is displayed in, is no longer ours. I could choose to remain sad and stay stuck in a place of hopelessness. But rather I will choose to rejoice, knowing that God sees the end from the beginning, and that HIS handiwork will be displayed wherever we go!
I thought it was fitting.)
