Isaiah 43:18-19 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
Forget what happened in the past, and do not dwell on events from long ago. 19 I am going to do something new. It is already happening. Don’t you recognize it? I will clear a way in the desert. I will make rivers on dry land.
What a year 2020 has been! Are you ready to close the book on 2020? I don’t know about you, but I know I am, and I bet you are too. It sure has been a year of a lot of twists and turns and a lot of firsts. A year full of ups and downs, heartaches and pain.
I’m ready to move on to 2021 to see what this new year might bring. I love this scripture from Isaiah, for it says, forget what happened in the past, don’t dwell on events of long ago. But look at the new thing that I’m going to do. Look at what is already happening among you.
I don’t know about you, but I’m going to look for that new thing that God is going to do among us. I’m going to look for the Spring that will soon be on the horizon, the fresh start.
In so many ways I feel like we at Hardinsburg UMC were robbed last year. We just completed our new building. Things were about to take off for us, and then Covid-19 hit, and everything was shut down.
I feel like we’ve been stuck in the winter, and to be honest, we will be stuck in the winter a little longer. But in my spirit, I know spring is on the horizon. Soon we will be out of this mess, spring will be here, and God will do something brand new among us.
Can’t you feel it, can’t you see it, can’t you see it has already begun? Just hang in there a little longer, it’s just around the corner.
