Something New

READ:  Isaiah 43:18-19 "But forget all that -- it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.  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.  

Maybe you feel like your in a wasteland.    A dry period of your life that seems unimportant or the outlook seems bleak.  Believe me -- I have been there.  There was a time in my life when I didn't really know how I would go on.   I was facing every single day feeling like no one saw me, and no one cared.  I carried an internal pain inside of me that burned like a flaming fire that never went out.    I remember I gave my testimony in church that God would carry me through and he would make a way.... the doctors may have had no way.... but I KNEW that God did.   


In our scripture today God is saying to you:  "Forget your past, forget your mistakes, forget your failures and your fears - you are my child and I am going to take care of you.  Nothing is impossible for me.     When you see no end, I only see the beginning.  I have a destiny for you and if you walk with me, I will make it happen.    You see only a dry wasteland, but I see springs of living water that will bubble up from you and produce the victories that I have destined you for.   See I have already begun to do something new.  You don't see it, but trust me.... I'm working all things together for your benefit and for your best!   Trust me because I love you.  I am yours  and you are MINE.       Love, Your Heavenly Father!"
