If you are like me and you are on blackberry, I’m sure you got a lot of happy new month broadcasts yesterday
So, it got me thinking…. New beginnings? New things? Has it become cliché? Or do we still wait with expectancy when we hear the word NEW. I know that a lot of times when we read the scripture that says, forget the things of old for behold I do a NEW thing we just smile and quote it very nicely back to ourselves but do we really stop and think about that word NEW? The Message translation puts it like this:
Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? (Isaiah 43:18-19)
I just love The Message bible. God just speaks to ME every time
What does NEW mean? NEW… novel, innovative, fresh, different, latest, pristine, original. Something that hasn’t existed before? Hmmmm…. So in actual fact we should be looking out for things that we are usually not accustomed to.
I like new things. New clothes, new shoes, new cars, brand new unopened stuff. I like to be the first to use things ….but the truth is I also like old things… I like my old bible
(maybe because I can seem to find everything in it even when I don’t know how to quote the exact scripture. Its usually been underlined or a promise dated), I like old friends, low maintenance old friends. People who you may not see always but you are already comfortable with so the relationship just flows …
I guess I like old things so much because I’m comfortable with the old. Old things are where you find your comfort zone. The truth is old is good but I find that if you can get out of that comfort zone mode that new is better.
You see, new is exciting, its refreshing and it can be life-changing especially if that new is from God. The funny thing is that God himself likes new things. He’s always talking about us forgetting old things and focusing on the new. he’s always declaring how He will do NEW things. just look its all over the bible
So I’ve decided in this month of August to step out in faith and expect fresh, innovative, novel and original things to happen for me and that is exciting because? Well, to be honest I had almost gotten to the point where I honestly am not sure if there’s anything else that can surprise me this year……oops! I just heard God laugh *shocked face* he just said “darling, you ain’t seen nothing yet!”. *dancing a major jig* really? Still more surprises lord? Still more exciting, fresh and breathtaking things I have never seen before? Omo, testimony no de finish for where God de sha. I’m in awe.
Okay so here is to August, my month of new, exciting, innovative, fresh and original things. I hope you will dare to believe for this august too to be that kind for you. lets celebrate in advance abi?
