Making big changes or transitions in life can often usher in things like anxiety, apprehension, and even down right fear. Moving from one stage of life to the next can be really hard. I think one of the most difficult transitions comes between adolescence and adulthood. Making that transition well is super important. During this transition, the effects of your decisions can be long lasting and far reaching. Some set themselves up for success and a beautiful life, while others put themselves in hardship and hurt. We lose so many of our young during this stage of life. This sad fact speaks into the pressure and importance surrounding this transition.
However, there are other transitions that are difficult as well. Young adult to middle aged has been no fun for me, and I dread the transition from middle aged to senior citizen. Some transitions are downright painful. Some are far more important than others. Always remember that the most important transition you can make is going from outside of Christ to inside. From being a citizen of the world to a citizen of Heaven. This is the great transition. So, no matter what changes lie ahead, remember that your faith and relationship with Christ is always the most important thing.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
