Times of Transition
How do we find a way through the darkest of days? I have been thinking about this a lot lately, and it’s a theme that has popped up more than once during the first two months of this new year, especially as we move towards the three-month mark of 2022.
Amazingly, despite the transitions that we have all had to deal with, whether it be the new variant with coronavirus, or adjusting to working from home, or going back to the office or school, it definitely begs the question of how we deal with changes in our own lives, and the lives of others.
For me, it has been an interesting topic to explore, as I transition into my third year with ReachAcross, and already, I have stepped back from my day-to-day responsibilities at the office and have began to delegate more to our younger folk as I contemplate entering my thirties.
Responsibility is a big challenge to handle when we are ill-equipped, but the transition is easier if we surround ourselves with the right people.
King David, one of the brightest leaders to ever walk the face of the planet, confided in God when he confessed:
“In you, Lord my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Saviour, and my hope is in you all day long.”
- Psalms 25:1-5
Even David, who was a king, realised he needed help when dealing with challenges beyond himself.
For us, we can take comfort in the fact that God has our back in the toughest of circumstances.
During our times of transition, we can lean on Him to teach and to guide.
