If You are Going Through a Change...
TRANSITIONS are so difficult. Change can hurt and change CAN help! Transitions are nothing new and they happen ALL the time. Often they are out of your control. Here's a little excerpt from my book, TRANSITIONS: Grace to Navigate the Storms of Change, for all of us that are in the midst of some type of change. (don't miss the last part: I placed it in BOLD to help you!)
"The fact of the matter is that this transition process began the moment you did! Think about your experience in leaving the womb and entering the world. You did not ask to have that happen at that particular time. God set it up. You may have done some kicking and punching during that period but God was in control. He put a nine month timetable together that may not be etched in stone, but gives us a good idea of how long it takes to “get it together”. After that designated time period, the process pushed you out. It was due season. It was your moment and the first thing that happened when you were pushed out is that you got slapped! Right there on your tiny behind! In the old days some of us were even turned upside down! And it did not stop there. You screamed for a moment and then they shoved this suction thing into your nose and mouth like they wanted to suck the brain out of your head. Like a new product on an assembly line you were being made ready for your purpose. After they rubbed you raw like they were wiping syrup off a dirty table, they put you under a hot light like a packet of fries at McDonalds. When the time was right, or maybe when you were the right tempera- ture and all looked well, they put you in a plastic container and rolled you down a bright hall. They even graded your appearance! Many things were happening around you but you had no idea what they were. Your eyes were still glued shut and the sounds were similar to what you heard before only louder. And then, finally, the chaos became calm, the bright- ness dimmed and you were placed in the arms of your mother. Nothing else mattered, you felt secure and peaceful. The transition from the womb to your mothers’ arms was not easy but you made it. I want you to hear that. It was messy, it may not have been the prettiest thing, it was very traumatic but YOU MADE IT!"
You will come out of this better than you went in-God knows what He is doing! Trust Him:)
