Transitions


"…everything that exists through creation is connected with change inasmuch as existence itself originates in change, the non-existing passing into existence by the divine power…the created nature cannot exist without change, because its very transition from non-existence to existence is a kind of motion and change of non-being altered into being by the divine will." (St. Gregory of Nyssa)

“Transition defined is, "The act of passing from one state or place to the next," or "an event that results in a transformation." One can be certain of this about transition. It does not allow you to stay in the same place. You can fight it all you want, but it will let you know, "I am here," and until you transition to the expected state, you and I will be miserable. Throughout Jesus' ministry, transitioning people from one state to another was His goal, whether it be in thoughts, in deeds, in health, and in words. However, more often than not, the people missed His transitions.” (Towera Nyirenda Loper)

“You can make different decisions; you can change, with God’s help. And the change in your own heart and life can have a long-lasting impact on the lives of those whom you influence on a daily basis. Is such a transition easy? Not usually. But you may be surprised at how receptive your friends, family and coworkers are to the changes in your life.” (NIV Men's Devotional Bible)

“A transition is a time to retool, rediscover, and redefine who you are." (Poppy Smith)

"Today let me not fear any changes or transitions in life, but place them all in God’s hands, in communion with those who did and continue to do His will.” (Sr. Dr. Vassa Larin)
