The Spiritual Life: Transitioning Well

The Spiritual Life: Transitioning Well

It is important to live our lives with wisdom and to finish the race marked out for us by God. However, it seems that few of us actually end our race with excellence. Instead, we drop out along the way, not knowing what to do with our lives. This often happens during times of transition or as we get stuck in the daily routines of life.
