*Sigh* I know you want to do it too.
We hear the word transitions and it just makes us want to sigh, or perhaps throw our hands up. If your life is anything like mine, it is full of transitions. Small ones, big ones, hard ones, and thankfully some easy ones.
When I’m honest, and I mean deep in the pit of my soul honest, I have to admit that sometimes I believe more transitions come to me because I am single. (Married women – please let me have a moment to explain)
Roommates are a case in a point. This year, for the first time in 10 years, I renewed a lease with the same roommates. I was so excited I threw a party…literally, threw a party.
There is a part of me that is tired. I’m tired of transitions, I’m tired of change, and I’m tired of the unknown. I want one thing to stay the same. In the midst of that desire, the idea creeps in that if I was married I would always have at least one constant.
I start to blame transitions on singleness,
I blame change on singleness,
I blame discontentment on singleness.
When I start down that path then all my discontentment becomes centered on my singleness. If only I were married…if only…if only…
But then I realize that even marriage can’t offer me the true consistency I’m longing for. Marriage still has change, transitions, and discontentment. Yes, you may have a constant partner to face the transition with, but it doesn’t change the fact that life is full of change.
The real answer isn’t marriage. No, the answer is Christ. I must focus on my one and only constant – Christ.
He is my Rock,
and my Deliver.
No matter the changes and transitions in life, He is there. He is the constant in my storm. He is the one who knows my joy. He is the one who knows me. He knows me completely and constantly.
He is with me.
What are some of the recent transitions you’ve been through?
