Come to Me all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
- Matthew 11:28-30
It isn’t the load that breaks you, it is how you carry it.
That’s the goal in transition and in life- it is all about how you carry it!
How you manage your transitions and goals is key to its’ success or failure. Transitions do not have to be negative. We can do our best to transition well, to keep our head up and work hard- but if our perspective on the situation begins with negativity, we are already doing ourselves a disservice.
Life can be hectic and harried. There may be painful days, difficult seasons, or confusing outcomes- but our God is steady, unchanging, unwavering, and firm.
It is His peace that comforts us (Romans 8:28) I don’t know about you friend- but recently my faith has been tested and my mind had to take a true step back and refocus.
It is easy to get caught up in only seeing the problems in our circumstances rather than trusting that God is at work behind the scenes. If we knew all the things He was working out for our good, maybe we would appreciate it more!
Today- reflect on your priorities in your times of transition. What is it that needs your attention? How can your focus help to shift your sights?
‘Father when I lose sight of you and my priorities get caught up on worldly views, help me to reassess and redesign my mind. I am searching for you in all things and making every thought and priority obedient to your will in this moment in time. I can accomplish so much with you by my side, keeping my eyes fixed on you.’
Reflect: What are my priorities in this time of transition? How can I transition well? Where can I delegate the work to others to better carry the weight of it all?
