Do you ever feel life begins to toss you in the wind of change? Maybe a move, job change, health issue, or family emergency throws you off your feet and you begin to search for your new normal.
I’ll admit, my family has been there before (several times) and in some ways we find ourselves here once again. Life is uncertain, the future is unclear, and there are a lot of choices to make.
Of course, both my husband and I are visionaries. We enjoy change and adventure…sometimes to a fault!
Maybe your life change was something you created or maybe it was just a circumstance that was thrust upon you. Either way, sometimes life is changing and neat and tidy plans don’t seem possible.
What do you do when life seems messy and uncertain?
Remember, while you don’t know the future, God knows every aspect and is in ultimate control!
Do your best to embrace the change. While there are life changes much more serious than the ones my family is facing, it is still easy to resist the unknown and worry about making the right decisions. However, at the end of the day, decisions need to be made and a new reality needs to be embraced if I want to keep bitterness and regret from my heart.
Find the good in your change of pace, location, or situation. Count your blessings and remember that every day holds gifts if we’re willing to see them.
Take time to enjoy the ones you love. Even (or perhaps, especially) when life is hectic, it is important to regularly spend time with the ones you love the most. Often they are in the same uncertain season and connecting with them allows you to face your decisions as a team…no one wants to go through life alone!
Have you ever felt like life was changing too quickly or the future was too unknown? How did you make it through? What advice do you have for others who feel the same way?
