A great pastor once counseled my husband and me as we considered a life changing move. He said,
God puts us in a place, for a reason, for a season.
As we prayed and pondered his words, they became true for us. Our season in that place was over. God had more for us to do elsewhere.
When we consider changes in our lives, no matter how large or small, uncertainty reigns. We long for a simpler time, when the choice didn’t have to be made, when the direction was clear, and when confusion didn’t surround us. What we often forget is that God can use us despite our feelings, our projections, and our self-evaluations. We are fine where we are as long as we are allowing God to mold us and grow us.
A great artist once wrote,
Welcome to wherever you are.
And he was right too.
