New Things...

"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."

-- Isaiah 43:19

Faith renewed.
Fears stilled.
Hope stirred.
Trust resurrendered.
He is making all things new...

And I can't exactly put words to it. I can't see beyond this one moment after the last one. But I can feel Him moving. I can feel Him "working in [me], giving [me] the desire to obey Him and the power to do what pleases Him..." as I "Hold tightly to the Word of Life" (Philippians 2:14 &16). He is speaking in a way my soul can hear again, popping off the pages of all I read, whispering between the words of every conversation I'm having... I don't know what's happened, but I know it's Him. And He transforms whatever He touches.
And at His touch, I am so humbled and so exalted, all at once...

The light of God surrounds me.
The love of God enfolds me.
The power of God protects me.
The presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is.

And so, we watch and we wait and we follow. And life is so much more extraordinary than any of us truly perceive...

"Here [we are], Lord. Send [us]..." -- Isaiah 6:8
