Stuck in Transition

Filed under Catherine's Thoughts on Oct 26 12 by

In August, I moved from New Jersey to a small mountain town in North Carolina. I didn’t move because I didn’t like New Jersey or because I lost my job. And I didn’t move because I was offered a job. I moved because I believed with all my heart that God was asking me to embrace and obey a calling He had placed on my heart, and I wanted to honor that request. But the transition hasn’t been easy. I’ve been asked many questions that I don’t have the answers to, and I’ve gotten frustrated because many of these questions are the same questions I’ve been asking God. “Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? Is this permanent? Can I even make a difference? What am I supposed to do for money?”

Maybe, like me, you feel stuck due to all of the uncertainty surrounding the situation you are in, and you’re asking, “God, why on earth do you have me here?”

If so, there is comfort in knowing who God is. If you’re struggling to remember, then I encourage you to take a stroll down memory lane.

Take a moment to look at your journey through life, even before you gave your life to Christ. Can you see all the signs of Him directing you to where you finally found Him? Can you see all the ways in which He has divinely led you to where you needed to be, providing for all your needs?

Take comfort in remembering that He loves and adores you. He has pursued you all the days of your life and fought for your love and attention. He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you. There is nothing to fear. The same God that managed all the details of those past moments is managing the details of today and tomorrow.

Note from Catherine: Life is all about transitions, and even some of the most exciting moments can be filled with worry and fear. If you ever want to talk about something you’re going through or share your story, feel free to comment here or send me an email. I’d love to get to know you and/or pray with you!
