Sorry I’ve been out of pocket for a bit- it’s been a full week so far with birthdays, holidays, spending time with family, sorting through old boxes, etc. (And sorry if you got this post in your email and then it wouldn’t open… I was trying to post via my app and I think it glitched up or something!)
Which brings me to today’s post. The other day I posted on twitter and Facebook a picture of an old school bookmark that I found in a pile of my “memories” that I left for yearrrrrrrrs at my parents house.
Remember back in the day when it was SO COOL to have stuff with your name on it and what your name meant or something. All my friends with “normal” names had things like “angel of mercy” or “beautiful one” as the meanings for their names, but I pretty much never had anything for my name. I mean, they aren’t gonna make a set of coffee mugs with the name “January” on it for the one girl in a hundred mile radius with that name.
Anyway, I’m not entirely sure where this bookmark came from but I probably kept it just because it had my name on it…
But I’ll admit that my breath caught in my throat a little bit when I read the verse with it.
Almost as if… almost as if it said:
I make everything new.
Like, that’s how I read it.
And even though I have already used this one, I’m gonna use it again. Because God reminded me.
With a bookmark.
That I got when I was, like, eight.
Now, THAT is some serious planning ahead on His part! Ha!
POSITIVITY: I am new.
Look! I am making everything new! Revelation 21:5
God, thank you for the sweet reminder today of who I belong to and for reminding me that You are making me new.
Help me to look for the newness in me. Help me to remember in my dark moments that there is a light for me in your newness.
Thank you for Your Hope.
