Walking in Newness

Happy New Week Lovebugs :) Who doesn’t love something new! Whether it’s new clothes, new shoes, or new jewelry, we love the idea of getting something new. But isn’t it great that in addition to receiving new material things, we’re also afforded the opportunity to receive a new life through Jesus Christ! 2 Corinthians 5:17 says “therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” It’s one thing to walk in a new pair of shoes, but are we ready to walk into a new life? As I’ve stated before, I’ve experienced A LOT this year, especially in the last few months. When I say my entire life has changed, my ENTIRE life has changed! God has blessed me with newness in EVERY aspect of my life. I have a (re)newed relationship with Christ, a soon-to-be new husband, a new address, new relationships and a new ministry. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around all of the changes that have taken place in such a short amount of time and to be honest it hasn’t been easy. Adjusting to change can be challenging because we get so use to being comfortable in our everyday lives. I know I was! I was doing just fine in my old life but apparently God had other plans! He took me from where I was to a place where He broke me, mended me, molded me, healed me and delivered me. It’s still sensitive to talk about because it was such a painful experience. I’m in a place now where I feel resurrected, like God is giving me the opportunity to “walk in newness”. Now the process of healing and re-emerging has taken time and I have and am still doing my best to be careful & not rush it. It almost feels as if I’m learning to live all over again. I’m growing everyday & am still learning more about God as well as myself. I trust and believe that God is with me, holding my hand and guiding me through. With every day that passes, I make sure to give Him thanks because He’s brought me a MIGHTY long way… and He’s not done with me yet! Ames :)
