There are certain seasons of life that bring more changes, uncertainties and unknowns than we ever would have expected. Have you ever walked through a stage such as this? Chances are you either have walked through this stage, are currently in this season or are about to walk into this season. Wherever you are on this spectrum- there is one thing that helps me keep my world from spinning out of control. And that is to seek something stable in your life. Search out one thing that has not changed amongst everything else in your life and focus on the constant nature it holds.
So what is the stability in your life? Is it a parent, sibling, a friend or a loved one? Maybe it could be something as simple as coming home to your apartment or house that you have created with love every single day… sometimes that is the most comforting thing to me. Maybe it is an activity, workout routine or class you find solace in. Whatever that person, place, or thing may be- seek it out daily in your life. Amongst constant change, confusion and lack of sameness, avidly pursue what you can rely on.
And as a bit of encouragement, let me remind you, the one thing that is truly constant, is the Lord. The only person in our lives who will remain unchanging, the only place we can go to seek genuine healing and comfort, is the Lord. Sometimes it may feel like God is the farthest away from where we are, but He desires to fill that space in your life, so are you allowing Him to?
When you need something stable… seek it with intentional persistence and allow it to carry you through the most difficult or challenging seasons of life.
