A new thing

Since today is the first of August.. it gives me an excuse to write about new beginnings. Dates always remind me of the way we can wake up each morning and start fresh. Every single day is a new beginning.. but some days really don’t feel like that. They may seem to be the same as the day before and the day before that. When that happens to me.. I know it is a sign.  I feel stuck and I begin to ask God what to do.

Since He is always doing a new thing.. I can be sure that if I am not experiencing new insights and new revelations of His character in my life.. I am missing something. Of course there are times when He is silent and we just have to wait. Then there are times when we are anxious and worried; we can’t hear Him because our own thoughts are drowning out His voice. The best times are when He reveals things to us..shows us where we are in His story and directs our steps. Our hope is renewed!

It is very comforting to remember that He is never standing still and is always at work in this world. He never leaves us or moves away from us. He waits for us when He needs to and He uses everything around us to draw us forward into the plan He has for us. Even those circumstances that seem unbearable are His tools to keep us seeking and desiring and longing for the abundant life He offers us.  Our God is amazing!

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”

  1. Your post has brought an old song to my mind, that I love. It is based on the following verse:

    Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

    Thanks for putting a song in my heart this morning! ~ Wendy

  2. I know that song Wendy.. thank you for reminding me.

    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
    His mercies never come to an end
    They are new every morning
    New every morning.

    So true …………

  3. There’s so much of the Bible, Old and New, that is wonderfully poetic and inspirational. It speaks of a God who is and always wants to be intimate with his most cherished creation, which is us!
