It's late. I'm quite tired but the drive of self discipline must be taking root. So, I sit down for five minutes as I have committed to do and write... Prompt: New
“Forget the former things;do not dwell on the past.19 See, I am doing a new thing!Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?I am making a way in the wildernessand streams in the wasteland.
"You make me new, you are making me new..." Lyrics from Gungor's Beautiful Things. Again, I found myself in the big blue chair tonight. I was putting The Peanut down for the second time. Thinking through what is new, I heard those words play through my mind. It's true, you know. He is always doing a new thing. He is so very much about new...moving forward. I have felt for a while now that God is calling me into a new place and I keep wondering when I will know if I have arrived there. When, Lord? When will I know if I have finally crossed the threshold that holds the answer of what it is you are calling me to. Then, like a lightning strike or maybe just a lightbulb lit, rocking back and forth in that chair, I realize it. "Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?" New is now. Everyday holds new opportunity to be called to His purposes. Forget the former but don't worship the future. Now is what I am called to. He is making me new everyday with ways in my wilderness and streams in my wastelands. May I not miss it.
