Today I am praying for those who are going through a transition in life. There are so many possible scenarios. Here are just some of the many possibilities:
- The ending of a friendship and/or the starting of a new one
- Physical relocation due to work, heath, or a family need
- Aging parents and all the care associated with their needs
- The death of someone very close to you
- The empty nest syndrome
- Time to find a new church
- Job or career change
- Mid-life crisis
If I missed your particular situation, write me and let me know. I will take your particular situation or need to the Father.
Whether I touched on your situation or totally missed it, know I am praying for you. This is a time to seek God. Seek Him just to be near Him (see Jeremiah 29:13). As the Proverb says, “… there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
Seek Him for wisdom and direction. Often in life transitions, we are tempted to make decisions we will regret later. Seek Him for the wisdom you need.
Spend time with Him in His Word. In life transitions we are super attentive to information but we really need truth. When we are empty and do not know where to turn we need illumination. In the Bible, we find occasions where people were “filled with fear.” God would have us be “filled with the Spirit.” Being filled with God’s Word and filled with the Holy Spirit is a powerful combination regardless of the situation you are facing.
If you have a relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, remember and draw strength from these words in Romans 8:35-39. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord..”
Stay close to Him today
