Change · ending

endings…

Endings…
I’ve been thinking about them recently…
some are sad… out of your control…
others… reasons to rejoice… pursuits achieved…

Some endings take a long time to process…
this week an ending more than a decade old…
was stirred afresh by consideration of a next step…

Unexpected emotions welled…
leaving me wondering… Why…?

Another ending comes next week…
a joy for a loved one…
a next big step…

Wondering what emotions will rise…?

Endings…
I’m not particularly sure I like them…
they generally come with change…

Change always calls for processing…
letting go of old ways…
setting new sights…

And I’m reminded of One Who has no end…
the One who never changes…
the One on whom a life can always depend…

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
therefore I will hope in him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24 ESV
