The journey of life change is the process of learning to Let Go, Start Over, and Move Forward with your life. Our 3 Steps Forward provide an inspiring quote and stepping stones to encourage you on this journey. Learn more about this process in After the Boxes Are Unpacked by Susan Miller.
Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective” (Colossians 3:2).
Let Go: It’s only natural to have expectations when you move. We often hope for a better job, a larger income potential, a bigger home, a different lifestyle – you know the list of expectations well. Disappointment can develop very quickly unless our focus is Christ-centered and not on what we have or don’t have.
Start Today: Think about your expectations and they’re effect on your happiness.
Move Forward: This week journal your thoughts about the specific expectations you have and why you think they will make you happy. Tell God you are letting go of each unfulfilled expectation and trusting Him with your life.
