It’s all about transitions, isn’t it? And if it isn’t, then you’re stuck in a rut and perhaps you should make some moves to get out.
I guess I sort of had it in my head that once you hit middle age you’d go into cruise control mode and life would be easy. Your kids are grown up and on their own, you’re financially secure, looking forward to retirement, and all that. I wish. I look back on the days when our kids were little and at the time I thought I was losing my mind. Ha! That phase of my life was a piece of cake in comparison to this one.
Now don’t misunderstand. I am in no way implying that I have a hard life. On the contrary. I love where I’m at, being a wife, mother, grandmother, writer, etc., but it’s like this: the need to change and adapt never goes away. To refuse to change is to refuse to live.
I’m up against some fairly major transitions at the moment. Some are exciting, some are mediocre, and others are just plain hard. But all of them are necessary. So this is where I focus on Jesus, the One who knows every single thing about me and loves me anyway. He knew all the stupid things I would do and He still saved me. That’s pretty awesome.
I am keeping my eyes on Jesus, because He will fill me with vision and purpose and passion.
Listen to Jesus. Do what he says.
