At work I’ve been tasked with figuring out a new role for myself. It’s been hard because I set one team up and now I’m leaving that team and trying to set another up from scratch. It’s a lonely endeavor, compared to the tight knit (and functional) team I once had.
But I think what is really troubling me about it is that after 3 years I had achieved a sense of normalcy at work, and now things are shaken up again. I’m worried that this time will require more of me – begging me to give up time from other areas of my life and gradually shifting my focus further away from the work of God.
I know God can make something out of this. He’s always finding teachable moments in the times when I don’t think I can do something myself. My prayer is that during this time I could listen to Paul’s advice in Colossians:
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.- Colossians 2:6-7

I can so relate to how you are feeling….because it has been hard for me to shift roles in my life and for the past few years…there have been many shifts….Some degree of comfort is soooo very nice…..it’s those times when you have to shift in too many that really set a person back….like you and Ryan getting married (shift)….Dad dying (shift)….getting remarried myself (big shift)….moving at school ( shift)
There are sooo very many roles in life…personal and professional….then there are the age shifts that affect it ALL!
It is however a fact of life for everyone….and it all ends up working for the good….whether we feel that will be the outcome or not!
I am so glad that I found your blog….now you have me thinking that I need one of my own!
