This week's reflection focuses on changing seasons, Psalm 23, and the sustenance provided by God and through Scripture.
Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
Fear of change makes me want to cling to the way things have always been done. I wonder if I am reluctant to look outside the square to see the new thing God will do, in and through me.
Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
- Isaiah 43:18-19a
Open my eyes, dear God, to the wonders of nature, where new things are being created every day. Open my heart and my mind to see the endless possibilities that change can bring. I want to allow God to make a path through the wilderness of mindless routine. To make way for the new thing God will do.
