Ah, Spring is such an interesting season. It’s like the weather is too afraid to commit to summer, but wants to let go of the winter. This inconsistency leads to a tumultuous season of rain and sunshine, which I see this a lot in my own life this time of the year. As a student, I have seen a lot of changes and I am entering into another season of change as I finish my senior year. From an change of friend groups to financial situations and family, just to name a few, the challenge ahead of me is not an easy one. Change is an inevitable part of life and depending on our approach to it, we can either persevere or we can become quickly overwhelmed.
Through my past and currently, I’ve found through my journey in faith that having an anchor in Christ through change is vital to keeping a kingdom perspective on my situation. A verse I continually fall back onto is Isaiah 43:19 and it says, “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Such a powerful verse! I love that God’s character does not change, but consistently brings peace and restoration through change. God provides so much for us and He knows the path laid out in front of you, even when we don’t! Even when the pathway seems difficult and the odds are stacked against you, keep following God. He has already begun something new and He will navigate you through this season.
I encourage you to keep this perspective through whatever change you are going through this Easter season. If you need help walking through changes in your life, we would love to be part of your journey and schedule a counseling appointment with you at www.east91st.org or by calling 317-598-1580.
