A New Thing in The New Year

Today's Scripture

"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." (Isaiah 43:18-19).

Thoughts for Today

We are beginning a New Year. As a child I lived with my grandmother, and she had many traditions. One was to clean the house top to bottom before the New Year began. Now believe me–this was more serious than the spring cleaning! The week between Boxing Day and the New Year, all Christmas decorations were packed away. Fresh doilies were put on the backs of the easy chairs. Curtains and carpets were vacuumed, and all cob webs were banished! All in preparation for the New Year. It was bad luck to begin a New Year with old dirt.

Dwelling on the past, the old dirt, can dampen the bright delight of enjoying a new thing. Old grudges, old hurts, fears, and things that could have been, we are told not to dwell on. "See, I am doing a new thing!"

The God of heaven and earth, our Creator, our Father, wants us to see that He is doing a new thing! A new work in us and for us.

"Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."

So let's open our eyes and see it. Open our hearts to receive it. Take this time to ready our hearts for something new. A fresh start, and a new beginning.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, open my eyes Lord. I want to see Jesus. To reach out and touch Him. And say that I love Him. Help me this week to clean the cobwebs out of the dusty corners of my heart. I sense that a New Thing is coming. Father, take all of me, until there is nothing left, but You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
