FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – NEW THING
It’s been a difficult week for me. I’ve been teetering on a decision I needed to make but it was not a pleasant choice. I addressed the issues (involving another person) and sadly, got the answer I expected.
When you get words like that, it’s never easy. But it had to be done. I did all I could to maintain the connection. Doing so freed me to shake the dust from my feet and walk away with a clear conscience.
Yesterday, after doing all that was in my ability to do, my decision was made.
And lo, a great weight was lifted from me. A weight I hadn’t realized I was bearing. A freedom settled in my spirit.
And the topic for today’s post was clear—Behold, I am doing a new thing.
Father spoke it to me as I drifted to sleep last night. I awoke today (Saturday as I write this) with a renewed sense of excitement and expectation. That’s my Word for 2017, after all.
My season of waiting, long agonized waiting, years of waiting—is over. Promises are being fulfilled. I’ve felt tangled in a spider web and it’s now dropped away. I am free to fly.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
I’m ready for a new thing, aren’t you?
