A new page is turned.
New possibilities have opened up.
What’s going to happen?
I don’t know.
For some reason, many of us say that we don’t like change. But then we generally like new beginnings. When we make choices that cause our lives to change and we can call it a ‘new beginning’, we’re ok with it? But we don’t like change?
Yes, we are strange and wonderful creatures.
And I am one of the strange and wonderful creatures who likes change.
Change is good.
I was taught to like change through my over 34 years of working for corporate Jack in the Box. We were constantly moving and adjusting and changing. If I didn’t like a change, I didn’t have to wait too long for it to change again. As long as my strategic brain could see us improving – hitting goals and moving forward – I liked it.
This has really helped me enjoy our electronic age where things change so quickly and so often. I’m typing this on my new ‘retirement’ laptop with a touch screen and the whole computer can turn into a pad. I haven’t figured out much about this computer beyond doing what I’m doing right now. But I will!
One of the things I love about God is – he doesn’t change.
He was here before the beginning and he will be here after the end.
He has promised – it’s a fact.
In our crazy world of unknowns, God wants to be known by you and by me. He gives us his Word. He gives us his Spirit. He gives us a spiritual family.
He wants us to know him and he guides us towards himself as we read, listen and obey.
I am extremely interested in discovering the new possibilities God is going to bring my way in 2017. As I start reading through the Bible again for the 6th year in a row, I am confident that God has new things to teach me and he also wants to remind me of other truths that I know but I’ve forgotten.
I’m so glad you are taking journey with me. I would love to hear more of your thoughts and experiences as we take this trip through God’s word in 2017 together.
Thank you for new beginnings, Abba Father.
