New beginnings…The concept has been on my heart a lot lately. Perhaps it is because a dark place along the walk with Jesus seems to have drawn to an end and the Son seems to be shinning again or it is because there is a New thing about to begin within the heart? Which it is, I know not, but that does not frighten me anymore. I know who is in charge although I do not know where He is leading me.
Regardless of where each of us are in our lives, each day is a new beginning – a gift from the Father. When He awakens us to a brand new day, we are assured from His Word that His mercies are new every morning and His faithfulness is never ending. It is there waiting for us to embrace, nothing else required. We can freely and boldly walk in the assurance that the good work He has started in us, He will be faithful to complete. Each step we take along the path He has lined out for us will never be taken alone.
The question that now must be answered is what is holding us back from walking in the newness of the day, of His mercy, of His love – from claiming our New Beginning? Are we trapped in old methods of thinking, stuck in old mindsets, or too convinced of our own knowledge/abilities? It is time to let it go, to allow Him to lift us out of the pit, set us upon the solid Rock, and walk in the light of His love and grace. When we do, we will not find that our paths are now smoother and easier, but rather we will continue to find that His grace is sufficient, His love is never ending, and His faithfulness with never change.
So, what’s new with you today?? I can tell you what is new with me – I am free!
