“Behold I am making all things new” Also He also said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true”
You know, I’ve always known the first part of that verse, but never had I paid attention to the second part until now.
I have loved the first part of this verse.
The all things new part, something about it speaks to me…
You know… Like a fresh start, a clean slate…
You ever need one of those?
I know I have…
In our busyness, in our sorrow, in our guilt, in our pain, in our hurts, our hang-ups, our relationships gone wrong, in our lost jobs, in our poor fiscal management, in addiction, in everything, in all of it, in the messiness of life…
He is making all things new.
How beautiful is it that we have his very words to reminds us that the creator of heaven and earth makes all things new?
You, me, us… New.
How awesome is it that we have an entire season dedicated to clearing away dead things to let beautiful things bloom in our lives.
Being from Florida it never really occurred to me how beautiful fall was until I moved to Maryland, and I really didn’t appreciated it for what it was until I moved to Europe. I’ve learned in this season, by the grace of God to let go of what’s not for me, to allow space for what is and to embrace the new…
Trust me when I say it wasn’t has not been an easy journey to get to this place of peace and it was by a lot of hard lessons that I had to learn this, but I take comfort in the “Behold I’m making all things new” and I hope you can too.
Funny thing is…
That is not where this post was going when I sat down to write it. I am certain my Father in heaven has a sense of humor.
I had initially planned on writing about starting my new job, with new coworkers, in a new place and how He makes all things new with a bit of Romans in there, but it is not what was planned for today.
I had planned to talk about Pastor Foodie and his ordainment, but again, for another time.
I have been wanting to write for a while now, but condemnation.
“You’re not good enough”
“No one wants to read what you write”
“You’re a terrible writer”
All the things, all the thoughts make me freeze up from sharing posts.
However, when I do write, I feel so much better, especially when I write what is on my heart.
Anyway, the Tiniest Foodies have arrived and I must go… I hope that whoever is reading this is blessed by the verse and I pray that He is making all things new for you, the way He is in the Foodie House.
Until Next Yum,
Foodie Finds Home
