Finding Hope in a Season of Change

Finding Hope in a Season of Change

Just write they say.  But what do you write about when your life is in a bit of a tumultuous season?  That season of course. 😊

I am in a season of change, much like the Fall we are just entering into here in New England. Some people have very strong feelings about entering into Fall…they see the trees loosing their leaves and the world around them turning brown, dark and cold. They fail to see the crimsons, and deep oranges that light up the trees or the refreshing breeze wafting through those leaves. The season of change is upon my husband and I… and I am choosing to look for the life giving joy this season will bring.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Our Fall is the process of prepping our house of 20 years for sale. Who knew so much needed to be done to a home we were comfortable in? Painting to flooring, landscaping to decluttering. It’s exhausting!  But this season is one I am excited about even if we are not sure where our next home will be or even what it will look like.  Wherever we may go to, I have one expectation and that is – I will be trusting in God to provide for our needs, prosper us and not harm us. I can focus on the emotional “loss” of our home through this sale, or I can focus on the blessings I experience every day and those I’m sure are yet to come in our next season.

This season is a beautiful season of change.  I choose to see the vibrant colors waving in the crisp Autumn breeze, I hope you do as well. If you liked this article, please feel free to share it on your social media accounts and I look forward to hearing about the season of life you are in.

    JoAnn love this. I can’t imagine moving today but I do like to imagine a one-story instead of a two-story and no pool. You must be busy. What a beautiful analogy.

      Thanks Debbie, it’s been challenging in some areas and freeing in others. … and still a bit nerve wracking and trying to fully trust God for where we go next

    JoAnn, I love this. We are on the backside of a change. We just moved back to Georgia from Montana. We have one more final move for this season to be completed and I’m praying it will come quickly. Thank you for sharing with Thankful Thursdays. I hope to see you again this week.
