New year! New decade. New options. New choices. New possibilities. New friendships. New places. New opportunities. New… everything! So what will do with all this newness?
I love Isaiah 43:18-19 — “But forget all that — it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. 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.”
Cool stuff, this new thing God wants to bring to us! This is more than some random New Year’s resolutions that are mere good intentions but never materialize into something real. This is the real deal! To see this happen, you have to let go of the old. You have to open yourself up. But, the result is peace and joy in life’s journey.
This new day is yours. Breath it in. Let God reveal to you the beauty all around you. Let God help you find the path. Let God create good stuff out of dry, tough times.
So, on your mark, get set, go!
