  1. I love the focus on God doing a new thing. We can get so wrapped up in our own efforts at making life what we think it can be. Or trapped focused on the past. This is a beautiful reminder to look up and notice God’s hand.

  2. It doesn’t feel like anything new is happening to me. Each day is pretty much the same. Routine, things are actually a bit stale, but perhaps I’m just missing it. Or maybe it’s the calm before things get shaken up. Next year I will begin homeschooling a bit more seriously with my son old enough for PreK. THAT will be new, for sure!

    Great post!

  3. Thank you so much for your encouragement! God gives me “words” like that fairly often. I try to listen and follow what He wants me to do, because it is SO obvious that God is telling me something. Just to have Him share His heart with mine is amazing. I hope your new adventure is a fabulous one, and keep on sharing with others!

  4. The thing God has been teaching me this year is that He is always doing something. It feels like he is silent sometimes or not moving… But that’s why He says “Will you not see it?” We have to open our eyes to see Him at work all around!

  5. God is definitely doing a number on me. Especially with my pride, (it hurt to admit that). I feel I hear him in those moments which is amazing as I find the pride in the moments that I didn’t think it was pride. I needed this new season.

  6. Sarah,
    I feel like you were writing this for me. This past year has been hard for many reasons. This morning as I was praying and asking God about a word for 2019 I opened to Isaiah 43:18-19 where God whispered to my heart that He is about to do something new. Thank You for my confirmation . I am ready with my arms wide open. Blessings to you on your new job !

  7. Great encouragement today. Thanks. When we really believe God is forming us into a new creature, how exciting it is. It means we can focus on our future and not the past.. We don’t live in regret, but in anticipation and confidence.

  8. God is always new, always bright, always loving. I am forever grateful for this. Good luck with your new job. Sometimes the hardest transitions make for the best growth opportunities!
