they are such an odd thing to me. it blows my mind how a transition can be exciting and scary and hard and happy all at the same time. maybe only a couple at a time. maybe different things completely. some transitions are just plain hard. some transitions are simply scary.
i feel like i have had many of them. transitions with living in different states. transitions in friendships. transitions with money. transitions with jobs. they all bring something different along with them.
each one, i feel like, stretches me a little more. a little further than i thought i could go. a little more than i am comfortable with. and then as i listen to “oceans” by hillsong united…
spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me. take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.
i can trust He is answering that prayer. that is the prayer of my heart even though i would rather He do it a million other ways. i would rather it be much less painful, scary, lonely. but “my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior”.
what a promise! what a promise to be there always. preparing the way before His own. what a blessing. how kind to know that the Father will lead me where my “trust is without borders.”
to live is Christ and to die is gain.
i pray that, by His grace, i live a life that is Christ and i can’t wait to stand in His presence. oh glorious day!
