Beauty in Transition
Thursday, September 18th, 2014
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NRSV)
During late September and early October in North America, the change in seasons requires different kinds of activity. There are bulbs to plant, and preparations must be made for winter. This is a transition time marked by unique beauty.
Changing seasons can be a metaphor for life itself. Life is filled with change and transitions. Perhaps these are natural processes of growing up and growing older. We welcome many changes with eager anticipation: self-discoveries, new relationships, finding a satisfying career, a new home, spiritual awakenings. But some changes are unwelcome intrusions: loss of relationships, changes in home life and personal life, work or financial setbacks, health challenges. All are a part of our normal life journey. How we handle them can make all the difference in life.
We need our transition times so that we won't get stuck in the past. We may not welcome every transition in life, but we do have a choice in how we will respond. In my experience, those who look ahead with hope to the new season are happier people and are always able to find some good in every situation. We behold the unique beauty of every transition when we take the time to see how God is moving us toward a new future with meaning and purpose.
