Transition is inevitable as long as we are on this earth.  Even
more so as we walk with the Lord. Therefore transition is
going to demand our flexibility.

In transition there are three phases:
    Ending  - Unknown  - New Beginning

We can be involved in all three of these phases at one time and
in many areas within our lives. We can probably agree, they run
ongoingly and perpetually. You may be directly or indirectly
involved with the changes that come with: graduation, marriage,
having a baby, starting a new job, job promotion, death of a
loved one, divorce, moving into a new home, relocating to a new
town, starting a church, finishing a rennovation, enrolling in a
new school, buying a new car, pursuing a business venture,
planning retirement, ending a relationship, closing the doors of a
business, handing down the family business,conforming to new
management style, age generated adjustments, learning to drive,
acclimating to a new climate, negotiating a compromise and so
many more. But whether direct or indirect we are impacted. All
these scenarios involve transition.  And transition means
transformation. In a lifetime we will many times over need to be
transformed in the renewal of our minds.

With each of these phases we need to understand that our
emotions are involved. So many times we have the thought that
we need to 'be a rock' in times of uncertainty, in times of
challenges, or in times of utter despair however, what we need to
do is 'STAND ON THE ROCK'! He is the Rock of our
salvation! Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and
my deliverer. My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my
shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Be like the
wise man and build your house upon the Rock. Matthew 7:
24-25 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and
doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his
house upon a rock. This will get us through every phase of every
transition.
