That’s where I keep telling myself I am. I’m in transition in marriage as we near twenty years. I’m near a transition in motherhood as one child has college on her mind while our baby steps into the 2nd grade. I’m transitioning from a tiny island in the Pacific Ocean to a humid state on the far southeast end of the United States. I’m transitioning in church, blogging, friendships, opportunity, service, age, and life.
All in one week, many of these things culminate into what could be chaos, but I need to look at it as a giant shining light of grace that Jesus is walking with me through. Without this grace, the bittersweet experience will weigh me down in ugly tears of defeat.
Jesus is walking right through the middle with me and my family… through transition, life, and whatever the future holds for us. He will see us through, hold us up, and brush away the snags along the way.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

It seems so easy to say these things. It almost feels simple to think about them. But living them, that’s a whole other story. We fight as hard as we can to hold to truth in all things, but when we’re in the thick of it, our brains want to go into fight or flight mode and forget who we are.
We are children of God. Jesus brought us to life at the cross. Because of what He has done for us, God works for us, not against us. All things always work out. Maybe we don’t like how the picture looks, but we always see things with narrow minds. We try to take off the blinders, but because of our nearsightedness, we need to rely on the truth within the grace.
As I remember that Jesus is walking through all transitions with me, walk with me, too. Let us, together, remember His goodness and trust that He will see us through.
