I am new.
I am new to many things in my life right now. I am living in the moment, enjoying the newness yet trying hard to hide the awkwardness of being new.
God blessed me with a new job. This position was newly created. I am not following in anyone’s footsteps; I am forging the path for those to follow. All the processes are new. I have new names to match up with new faces. I have a new daily commute. I have a new perspective on life and I have new opportunities to utilize my skills and talents. I enjoy the new opportunity to use my brain.
I am new.
Years ago, I had hit rock bottom in my life. I became new when I reached out for the hand of Jesus reaching out for me. He walked beside me and said, “I have great plans for you.”
The job is not the only thing new in my life. God is doing something to my heart and I look forward to sharing what he is doing to me to make me new.
We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
