At some point in our lives, we all experience change. Whether it be a big change, or a small one, encountering change is not always the easiest thing to get used to. We love staying in our comfort zones, so when God tells us it's time to change, most of the time our first reaction is not to rejoice.
Sometimes change is fun, though. When a new baby is coming into the family, or when you are planning on moving away to go to your dream school, you are able to see Jesus faithfulness in a whole new way. The butterflies that are in your stomach have little to do with your nerves, but more to do with your excitement.
It is fun being in our comfort zones, and it is even fun to try new things, but getting to that second phase is where things can get tough. Transition phases, or as I call them, the "grey" areas, can sometimes be dull and even nerve-wracking. That grey area is especially rough when you are called into a new season quickly.
A few years ago I had to go through an eight month period of a transition phase unexpectedly, and it taught me a few things: 1) Don't look at it as bad. God has a plan and a purpose. He had all of our days mapped out before we were even born. It may be a surprise to us, but it is not to Him. 2) Stay in prayer. This is how you get your peace in the grey area. He will speak to you, just listen. 3) Be happy that something better is on the horizon. We go from glory to glory, and each new step is a way for us to see God's goodness in a new way.
So, to anyone who is in a season of change: I am praying that you are able to see Jesus faithfulness in a new way. He is in the waiting, and will always meet you right where you are.
