What if lifes transitions are there to remind us that God is present before, during, and after these periods?
The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions by Jeff Manion, provides fresh biblical insight for people travelling through undesired transitions. For people who are looking for hope, encouragement and guidance, whether it is due to foreclosure, post-graduate uncertainty, business failure, loved ones in declining health or any other period of unwanted transition.
In The Land Between, author and senior teaching pastor Jeff Manion uses the story of exodus and the journey of the Israelite's through the Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in undesired and transitional space. The descendants of Jacob, freed from generations of slavery in Egypt, travelled through the Land Between (the desert) to their new home of Canaan. In the desert, the Israelite's despise their new environment and long for the food of their former home in Egypt. They are unable to go back and incapable of moving forward.
In The Land Between, Manion investigates the ways in which this story and the reactions of the Israelite's can translate to the modern era and help us through the transitions we encounter in our modern lives. God desires to meet us in our emotional upheaval and chaos, and God intends for us to encounter his provision and goodness during these upsetting times.
It is possible to move through transitions and not learn anything, but they provide the greatest opportunity for spiritual growth.
