Transition Part 2...
My "new to me" couch in my "new to me" house!
Revelation 21: 5 "And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."
He makes all things new!

Transition is not easy. But I think change is good, hard but good. We humans like steady, normal, comfortable. If something causes us pain we tend to reject it...and yet, pain is one of the greatest teachers and can lead to mighty and wonderful transformation.
He was my best bud....sigh

Knowing it is purposeful, doesn't make the sting of loss easier. It merely allows you to calm down long enough to accept what is, and persevere. I said last month I felt God was making all things new. As I re-read it just a few short weeks later, I thought, "how glib was I?". Oh, I know, God is in all of it - and has a purpose for it; but the pain is still present and it is something we need to experience, to walk through, not push away. Pain shifts us. It can set us free if we allow it to. But, pain should not be our only focus. We must also come at transition with a heart full of gratitude. We should be grateful for what we have, what we have been given and for what is to come - that we cannot YET percieve! Having a grateful heart is healing balm to a wounded soul.
So, I am faithfully launching into the unknown with a grateful heart, with wonder and expectation!
God is good. W
hile I mourn having to leave my dog Snug behind; I am grateful he has a good home and will be well loved. While I mourn the loss of my little farm house...I am thrilled to have this new place! And while I don't know what God is going to do about the car I know He will provide. I have seen how He restored what was lost with my furnishings, and my house and I am grateful for the new things He has given. Above all of this
, I am grateful for all the amazing people God has put in my life who love me and take such amazing care of me! I am blessed and highly favored. So, while I still ache with all the change, I am full of joy and walking into the future!
Some more "new to me" things...
We might not always know what God is up to...
But we can trust
It is Good!
Onward-Into the unknown!
