Transitioning With Grace
Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
This time of year is one of transition, isn't it? Sacraments are celebrated, graduations dot the calendar. Everyone, it seems, is moving from one stage to the next. For us, it's about my second-to-last son graduating from high school this month and starting college in the fall. Since he is the fourth of five, in one sense, it's all old hat to me. But of course, because he's different, this is different.
His father died when he was seven, so he's grown up without him. And he moves into manhood without him. He seems perfectly fine, but I confess I still worry about it. Sometimes the whole situation makes me question God's wisdom. But all of us live with gaps and questions, don't we? And what can we do but trust, give it to God and welcome the grace we so deeply need and he so abundantly gives?
Loving God, your grace is sufficient.
