Transitioning—Move Forward!

Transition: passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Why do we need to transition? There comes a time in our lives when the Lord begins to move us toward a new season and it's crucial to transition smoothly.

"You will live in the fruit of this moment."  Kim Walker 


Seasons come and seasons go and "people come and go so quickly." Things change, they really change and it makes us feel as if the world has just shifted up and down and all around in just a blink of an eye. In these moments we have to quiet our hearts and be sensitive to the voice of God. It's not a question of whether we can be literally silent or not, but about how obedient and responsive to God we can be. We're not born with a perfect pitched spiritual ear, it's developed and formed as our relationship with God grows. We begin to know what He sounds like and feels like. In my case, when I stop everything and silence the world around me my room becomes my meeting place with God. Here behind closed doors I cry, I converse, I laugh, I question, and I worship, and here is where I feel God walk, whisper words into my heart, and overflow my heart with love and guidance. It's in these moments where the Lord begins to prep us for what lies ahead, because the strength of our relationship with Him determines how we handle and walk through each passing season. A smooth transition. As children of God we need to know how to move from one place to another, trusting God with our lives. Some seasons are rough and others are full of joy, but one thing that I know to be true is this God is still God and never changes. His promises for us hold true and each lesson is meant to be learned. Yes, it's for our benefit. Because we love the Lord, all things work together for our good.

(Ecclesiastes 3:1) For everything there is 
a season, a time for every activity under 
heaven.

(Ecclesiastes 7:10) Don’t long for 
“the good old days.” This is not wise. 
*~*
(Galations 4:9-10) But now that you know 
God—or rather are known by God—how 
is it that you are turning back to those weak 
and miserable forces? Do you wish 
to be enslaved by them all over again? 
You are observing special days 
and months and seasons and years!

*~*~*


No matter what the new season may be 
that the Lord is walking you through, 
keep your eyes fixed straight on God. 
Don't look to the right nor to the left and 
walk on. People will fail you and buildings 
will try to contain you but the presence 
of God, now that will be with you 
wherever you go.
