Transitions – The Changes That Come In Life

NOTE: This is a Guest Post used with permission from Gloria Thomas Anderson, LMSW at

Transitions are changes that come in life and often seem to be occurrences beyond our control. There are several well-known sayings that can be relevant in times of transition.

You’ve probably heard the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference.”

Another popular saying is: “Let go and let GOD”.

Life, like the weather, can be unpredictable. Memorial Day just passed and some people planned for a picnic, but a thunderstorm came and canceled out their plans. Having all the ingredients for a successful outdoor event—good food, great people and a perfect venue—becomes irrelevant when the weather overrides the planned festivities.

Recently, I went through a transition where both of these sayings have relevance. I realize there are some things I cannot change. That includes other people. I cannot change what other people think, say or do—even when it isn’t what I want to hear or accept.

That’s where the wisdom kicks in and where I decided to “let go and let GOD”. I wrote this Prayer of Acceptance as I move forward, even in the midst of seemingly unpredictable change in my life. If you are going through a transition, whether it is desired or not, may this prayer encourage your heart and soul.

Thank you GOD for this release
I accept by faith, Your Peace
I choose to welcome and embrace
This new life season of Your Grace
I know that You are in control
And that You never make mistakes!

When we choose to let go and let God, change what we can, accept what we cannot change and have the wisdom to know the difference, we are better positioned to flow with whatever comes our way.

Blessings to you,
