Young, Restless, on the Job Market

Job Search

 

But, “What if you don’t know what to do with your Life?”

“Does God care where you work” anyway?

A prayer for the job hunt.

And how about looking at the future as an invitation to “Choose your own adventure.”

Don’t get “lost in transition”

At Christ Community Church we are reading the Gospel of Mark together. This week we’re in chapter 2; and as we heard in Sunday’s message, Jesus is still bringing change to his people. To hear or read more connected to our series, “Who do you say I am?” visit our church’s current series website (or in the archives).

So how do we treat these transitions?

Sarah shares about trusting God with the future over at The Evangelical Outpost.

Distinct Disciples offers some suggestions for honouring God and leaving well when you know it’s time to resign from your current role at work.

The High Calling offers a number of posts and links for changes at home, work and in the community. Be sure to click on them!

This post addresses life transitions.

Back to School

September’s here, and for many of us, that means a return to the classroom for some of the ones we love.

Michael shares the prayer he wrote after dropping his kids off for their first day of school.

Christopher’s piece on peer pressure is helpful for parents of teens as well as adults in the workforce as he reflects on how some lessons need to keep being learned. We aren’t so different from our kids after all…

Parents and college students alike may find the College Transition Initiative helpful. The site desires to provide resources that prepare “Christian students and parents to bring Glory to God during some of the most formative years of a young person’s life.” Topics range from social activities to college debt to ways to grow in faith.

This post is for parents and older teens/young adults and provides resources and stories that deal with the transition back to school.

There is a time for everything… keep the right perspective.

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens…

-Ecclesiastes 3.1

Change is inevitable. Change is what makes life happen. God works change in our hearts, we work change in our lives as we follow after God. Change is challenge as well as opportunity.

Craig Goodwin reminds us of this truth in “A Time to Plant and a Time to Uproot.” God can do some pretty cool things in your growing season.

Ready to accept that change is coming, whether you like it or not? Then follow RIchard Dahlstrom’s words on having the right perspective.

For a sample of handling life transitions well, check out this advice from Simple Marriage on making the most of your move with your spouse: “Making the Most of Moving Together.”

The writer in Ecclesiastes 3 does a lot of reflecting on God and how God is at work through life’s changes, and he comes to this conclusion:

I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.

-Ecc 3.14

Not all changes come from God, but we can rest assured that whatever God does in the midst of the changing seasons of life is meant for our good.

This post provides inspiration, a challenge and ideas on how to handle life transitions and change.
