    How to Make the Most of a Season of Transition

    Transitions test us. We struggle against them because they come with a little (or a lot of) discomfort. Yet a season of transition can be a profound way to learn about yourself, strengthen your character and draw near to God—if you make the most of it!

     

    Plug Into Community

    Wherever you are and whatever your season of change looks like, plug into your community. Attend classes. Go to local events. Join a group or club, and of course attend a church on a regular basis. If you’re an introvert, step out and initiate friendships. If you’re an extrovert, quiet down and listen to others! This is your chance to build relationships that may bolster you through this season.

    If you’re tempted to skip this because of the pending change (particularly a move)—don’t! The friends I left behind in each of my moves were the same people who bolstered my heart from a distance. You need them. Put down roots, invest in friendships and make the most of where you are.

     

    Turn Over a New Leaf

    A transitional season is a great time to start new habits. Whether you’re headed to college, a new job or a new city, your arrival signifies a new stage of life. Take this time to assess your goals for the next year; what needs to change in your day-to-day? Where is God calling you to improve?

    Learn how to set grace-driven goals. Kick those bad habits for good and start healthy ones in this new season!

     

    Ask for Help

    You don’t have to go through this time by yourself. You need your community—which is why you should never cut them off in a season of transition! Whatever you need, don’t be afraid to ask for it. God often provides for us through the generosity of others, and they are just as blessed by helping you as you are blessed by their kindness.

    Remember what they do for you, and one day—when you see another girl in a season like yours—be as generous as your friends were to you!

     

    Press Into Prayer

    Finally, let this season jump-start your prayer life. Each time you struggle with fear, uncertainty or unbelief, bring it to Jesus. He longs to hear your voice, to walk with you through this difficulty! He is there expressly for times like this. Instead of giving in to the overwhelm, let the Spirit of God overwhelm your heart and mind. Let Him bring you peace, and watch as this season becomes a fruitful harvest down the road.
