Transitional Friday: 9 Lessons I learned from Life Transitions

transition

 

 

For over three years I searched for a new job.  I also prayed about a place to live.

God finally answered both of these prayers at the same time.

When circumstances changed and life began to turn around, I was surprised by the mixture of feelings I experienced.

I was excited for the changes and opportunities ahead of me, but scared to death to be taking such a huge step into the unknown.

I was moving from what I knew and was comfortable with to a life that was completely new and unknown to me.

I had the common fears and uncertainties that our emotions can drive us to.  However, I was also excited about the changes and improvement to life these changes would provide.

I discovered that to handle this wide range of emotions:beginnings out of endings

  1. I had to take a deep breath
  2. I shared my hopes and fears with God
  3. I went through the motions, even when I was scared to death
  4. I had to take a leap of faith and trust God knew what was best
  5. I reminded myself this was an answer to prayer
  6. I reminded myself transition is part of life
  7. I had to take on minute, one hour, and one day at a time
  8. I was thankful for these blessings
  9. I wasn’t along, God was with me

What lessons have you learned in your life transition?
