Welcome to my blog! I use the word "singing" as a synonym for "seeking." I write about my Jesus-seeking in the everyday.   Sip on something yummy and stay awhile!

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.

Isaiah 43:18-19

"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.
