It’s that time of year when things are changing in our lives. For me, a milestone I’ve so dearly waited for has passed. I have celebrated my last year of high school and have graduated into the future. I can’t help but to feel a little sad that those times have gone so quickly. A few of my life goals have been accomplished and I am left to start over and commence filling up new goals.
The quote above is known to belong to Dr. Seuss and is a happy thought to remember when something we have looked forward to is fulfilled. I want to choose to be happy about achieving my goals and not spend my time being gloomy that those times are over. I can be happy that God has filled the last twelve years of my education with so many life experiences, love, and care.
So, if a stage in your life has ended and you must move onto the next, let’s be thankful for what God has given us during that stage, and look to our upcoming stage with a smile; because God won’t let us go on to that stage of life without the tools and knowledge we need. He has loved and protected us in the past and He will do the same in our next steps of life, even if we don’t know where those steps will lead us!
Isaiah 40:31 – “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” KJV
Have you just completed a stage in your life and have begun another?
Are you sad that it’s over, happy that it happened, or both?
