All Things New…

Twice now over the past two weeks, Isaiah 43:18-19 has crossed my path. Both times I was struck in silence. I was speechless mainly because I felt God’s presence and warmth.

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 wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.

I usually have a tendency when the tide changes to stay busy and to hide away doing things that keep me from really dealing with what’s going on emotionally.  The new thing is that I am not being allowed to do that now. I’m glad for it.

I spent the day yesterday helping my neighbor with building a new door to the fence in the yard. It was very rewarding to get dirty, use power tools and fabricate something useful. I had a great time. My neighborhood is also extremely friendly. For the most part, we all help each other when it’s needed.

God’s got this time… I feel very comforted by him in these moments.
