Every life-transition will reveal our insecurities. One of the gifts of transition is exposure. God sheds light on us so he can heal us and prepare us for what is coming.
Transitions are like sandpaper—they sand away our sense of security and reveal where we have placed our trust. The deeper we walk into a life change, the harder the transitional sandpaper works. We begin to see our true self, hidden beneath schedules, success, or sin.
God loves us so much. He wants the next phase of our lives to be healthier than the one we are now living. God will dig deeper to reveal the layers of personal brokenness we have used as deflective shields against the healing work of his Spirit.
The sanding away of these personal illusions is part of the preparation for what is to come. Don’t resist it. Offer God all of you so that in the end he will have shaped you more and more into the image of his Son.
