Navigating Rough Waters

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Transitions in our lives can be like whitewater experiences. The inevitable leaps from one season of life to the next – college to career, changing jobs, living with parents to living alone or with a spouse, career to retirement, youth to old age – are all marked by uncertainty and insecurity.

In one of the most significant transitions recorded in Old Testament history, Solomon assumed the throne from his father David. I’m sure he was filled with uncertainty about the future. His father advice? Be strong and courageous, and do the work…For the Lord God, my God, is with you.

We’ll have our fair share of tough transitions in life. But with God in our raft we’re not alone. Keeping our eyes on the One who is navigating the rapids bring joy and security. He’s taken lots of others through before.

God guides us through the rapids of change.
