 If you could change your fate, would you?

Isaiah 43:18-21

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.

I get to live these verses. I’m leaving my former things. I’m getting to put my past behind me. I am starting a NEW THING! God is making my way through the desert. I am one of his people. He will provide. I am scared. But I am so excited. Today as I was reading and journaling I began thinking. How amazing this really is. I get to start new. Fresh. No one in Kansas has ever heard me gossip, talk bad about someone, complain, they’ve never seen me get mad, or anxious. I’ve never hurt or offended anyone in Kansas. I’ve never been a bad friend to any of them. My life is new there! So I get to live these verses. I only pray that I live the life that God wants me to live. I pray that my new life shows more of him and less of me. I’ll be thinking about this for the next two weeks.

What are things I want to change?

How do I want my life to be different?

How can I be a better, more loving, more Christ-honoring person?

What would you change if you had a new start?
