Typical Reaction To Transition

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comWhat happens to most of us during transition?

  • Fear
  • Confusion
  • Uncertainty
  • Anxiety as our minds whirl and thousand miles a minute trying to conceive every kind of possible situation and the outcome.

What do we do when a transition is thrust upon us? When it wasn’t what we wanted, isn’t God’s will, or we are forced into change unwillingly?

Unforeseen and unwelcomed transitions such as divorce, fired, accident, illness.

What do we do?

Get with God.

Be raw. Be real. He can handle it. Tell Him you don’t like it. Be alone in prayer with God. Take walks and talk to Him. Get alone and tell Him you are afraid or you don’t understand and that you are at a loss of where to go next.

Be careful not to accuse God. God is our good father. And over my many years of faith life I’ve discovered that all the difficulty in my life has always come at the hands of the demonic. God never sets us up to hurt us but the devil will use everyone and anyone to further his work of destruction.

Read the Psalms. Read until you find the passage that is the cry of your heart. The verses that speak: “That’s my need. That’s my heart song.” Cry it out to God. It’s okay to tell Him you are angry but then ask His hand to begin the forgiveness process. Ask Him to heal you of your anger, disappointment. Ask him to stay close to you.

My brothers and sisters, in your greatest loss is something unexpected and utterly fantastic. It is an invitation. The devil is poised and waiting for you to turn away from God, accuse Him. OR in a difficult moment or season we can turn to God fully, tell Him we don’t understand. We can resolve the pain and loss with Him and reconcile to receive His peace.

Where you have your greatest loss is something hidden. What the enemy meant for evil is an invitation for your greatest victory. Because around the corner is the miraculous. It’s new levels of encounters, new levels of answered prayer and your authority over the very thing meant to harm you now becomes your conquered ground and you are then empowered to help others to become free! Hallelujah!

Loss is pain. It’s disappointment and fear but it’s also a divine invitation. It is the gateway to beginning to a new level of intimacy, new levels of anointing, it is the very path to holy ground of miraculous victory and the divine. It is your invitation into your destiny.

AMAZING. Thank you Jesus, that You redeem and restore all things. AMEN


Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!
