Finding Strength in God’s Goodness During Life Transitions


Life is full of twists and turns, isn’t it? We all face moments of change and life transitions, some expected and others that catch us off guard.

Tamara was in her early fifties when she faced a significant life transition. Her children had left home, and her marriage was going through a rocky season. Tamara felt lost. It seemed like life as she knew it had vanished into thin air. She struggled to deal with the emptiness she felt inside, and she often wondered how to find strength in the face of uncertainty.

Sound familiar? What significant life changes or transitions are you grappling with? Perhaps you’re dealing with changes related to your job, empty nest, separation, or divorce, or considering retirement. Maybe you’re facing significant health changes or coping with the grief from the loss of a loved one. Life transitions can be challenging, but we can find strength, purpose, and joy in God’s Goodness.

Navigating Life’s Transitions: Finding Strength in God’s Goodness

Finding strength in God's goodness in Life transitions

Tamara wondered how to find strength in uncertainty. But she found hope in her faith and the powerful truths in God’s word. You, too, can find strength in God’s Goodness to help you navigate the changes and challenges in your life successfully. May these powerful truths encourage you.

1. Make Prayer Your Lifeline.

In times of transition, prayer can become our lifeline. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but when we turn to God, we find comfort. Tamara learned to pour out her heart to God and seek His guidance and peace. One evening, she sat on her porch, and with tears streaming down her face, she whispered, “Lord, I don’t know what the future holds, but I trust You. Show me the way.” And in that quiet moment, she felt a sense of calm and a reminder that God’s strength can sustain us even when our own fails. Like Tamara, pour out your heart to God, seek His guidance, and find peace even when your own strength wavers.

Scripture Meditation: Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6).

2. Trust God’s Blueprint.

Tamara decided to seek God’s will for her situation. She started journaling her thoughts and prayers. As she prayed and meditated, she realized that God had a blueprint for her life that might not align with her own desires. One day, she remembered a verse her grandmother often quoted when she was a child: “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). Trusting in God’s plan and purpose for her life helped Tamara focus on what truly mattered during this transition. God called Abraham to leave his homeland for a new place that he would show him (Genesis 12). This required trust on Abraham’s part. You, too, can trust God and know that His Goodness and purpose will prevail in your transition.

Scripture Meditation: Commit your activities to the Lord, and your plans will be achieved (Proverbs 16:3).

3. Embrace Community

Tamara reached out to friends, neighbors, and her church community. Instead of feeling needy, she embraced their support. Others willingly offered their expertise and encouragement. Shae, who had also faced a divorce, shared her own journey of healing. They prayed together, laughed, and cried. Community became her lifeline and reminded her that she wasn’t alone on this journey. In your transition, reach out. See the support of your friends, neighbors, and church community as God’s extension of his Goodness to you.

Scripture Meditation: A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time (Proverbs 17:17).

4. Embrace God’s Peace in the Storm

During sleepless nights, Tamara clung to God’s promises. His peace comforted her heart and reminded her that joy would come. Life transitions might be stormy, but God’s perspective always brings hope. She recalled a sunrise hike she took with her daughter years ago. The darkness gradually gave way to light, just as God’s perspective brought hope. As she continued to navigate the changes, she found glimpses of joy even in the darkest moments. Friend, God is your comfort in the storms of life. Even during sleepless nights, Hold on to His promises. They’ll sustain you.

Scripture Meditation: Weeping may spend the night, but there is joy in the morning (Psalm 30:5b).

5. Persevere and Never Give up!

Tamara resolved never to give up. She faced setbacks, but her faith fueled her perseverance. God sustained her energy, even when the journey seemed endless. Knowing that her strength came from God kept her moving forward. One day, she wrote in her journal, “Lord, help me keep going, even when my legs feel weak.” Friend, no matter the uncertainties in your life, never give up. Lean in. Your strength comes from the Lord.

Scripture Meditation: If you do nothing in a difficult time, your strength is limited (Proverbs 24:10).

Final Thoughts…Triumph Amidst Transition

Friend, you are not alone. God walks with you through every twist and turn. His Goodness is your anchor, and His love sustains you. Tamara’s journey wasn’t easy, but she discovered that God’s Goodness shines brightest during life’s transitions. As Christian women, you and I can find strength by leaning on God, trusting His purpose, embracing community, seeking His peace, and persevering. May we all experience God’s Goodness and strength to triumph in the midst of change.
