Today I am linking up with the The Gypsy Mama for the 5 Minute Friday. I write simply. No thought given beforehand. Just words, free flowing from my heart and out my fingers. I write freely, without worrying about perfection. No editing. Just simple and raw. Straight from my heart to yours.
Today’s Prompt: NEW
Read. Set. Go!
I am so thankful I am not the same person as I was 20 years ago before I accepted Christ. I am a new creature. I have a new hope, a new future.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
I am so thankful that the mistakes I’ve made in the past have been bought and paid for by His blood. I get to start with a clean slate every day.
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; (Lamentations 3:23)
I am looking forward to a future filled with hope and the promise of joy. We’ve been through some struggles over the last year, but I am thankful that He makes all things new!
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19)
Father, In the newness of the morning, I will rise and give You thanks, for all that you’ve done, and all that You are yet to do. Thank you God that You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Your faithfulness surrounds me and you give me a hope and a future. You renew my strength and set my feet to dancing.
*I added a few scripture references after the timer went off for good measure!
