My ABCs of Transition

January 26, 2015 by Alyssa Martin Comments

 My ABCs of Transition...
When I was five years old, my family picked up and moved from southern Georgia to Castle Rock, Colorado where my parents planted a church. From the age of 5 to 24, I was a part of 8 different churches in 3 different states. My hottie-pastor-husband and I are now located in small-town Kopperl, Texas.

I have lived in a ministry home my entire life. My parents were church planters and I have been married to my husband now for almost two years. One thing I have learned that often comes with a ministry calling is frequent transition.

My oldest child turned sixteen years old in December.
 

Sixteen.

That's 2 years away from eighteen, if you're doing the math. By then, she'll be packing her bags and moving away to attend college, meeting the man of her dreams, beginning a career, and making her mark on the world.

As I was watching her the other day this fact hit me like a ton of bricks.

The brunt force of my own idealistic expectations and other’s real and perceived expectations hijacked my identity.

‘Pastor’s wife’ became foundational to my identity instead of solely my calling. These impossible expectations personified into a false inner coach who barked orders and criticized when demands were unmet. This inner voice was my constant companion choking out truth.
