I enjoy eating at my favorite restaurant.

We’ve visited often enough, I know what to expect.

Great service. Friendly people. Amazing food.

Rarely are there surprises. I appreciate the restaurant’s consistency.

When it comes to God, I know what to expect as well.

I visit with Him often. I read His Word. I’ve spent time learning of His ways, His attributes, His character.

I appreciate God’s consistency, too. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Even though His thoughts are not my thoughts, and His ways are not mine either, I pray daily for mine begin to align more with his.

My life will soon again be in transition. My job is ending in the next couple of weeks.

I’ve walked this road before, even though I imagine this one will be slightly different. Each journey through transition has its own unique twists and turns.

Uncertainty. Unfamiliar territory. A little anxiety. A little uneasiness.

But there’s also excitement, a sense of adventure, and the thrill of new opportunities.

God is in this.

I know because nothing happens that isn’t sifted through His hands first.

And when God’s involved, there’s no reason to be uneasy or uncertain.

I’m secure.

And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity]. Psalm 9:10 (Amplified Bible)

Because I’ve seen God work in my life, time and time again, I’m expecting to see Him do some amazing things during this particular season.

I’m expecting Him to show me what’s next for me on this journey.

I’m expecting Him to provide, to guide, to bless, and to stretch me. I’m expecting to experience His presence, His love, His grace, and His wisdom.

I’m expecting these because I’ve experienced them before.

We can expect God to work in our livesAs I continue to pray, and seek, and rest in God’s will.

Yet, God may do something completely different. No matter what He does or doesn’t do, I know it’ll be for His glory and for my good.

And friend, the same goes for you.

When you find yourself in an unfamiliar place, trust what–and Who–you know. Look back at past experiences. Where did you see God act on your behalf? Did things “just work out?” Did the unbelievable “just happen?” I’d say God was in it, and He’s in what you’re walking through right now.

Expect God to guide you, to work things out according to His perfect plan for your life, for His glory and for your good.

Where do you see Him working now??

I’m with you as we trust God and expect to see Him at work, together.

Cheering you on today,

Julie
