Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:18-19 KJV
As we embark on a new year in 2022, God reminds us not to dwell on the past. The past is behind us, and the future is now. We can make the most of every moment, from moment to moment.
My husband, son, and I are allocating three days of driving so that my husband can be well rested for his first day at work on Monday, January 3rd. He will be the CEO of Heading Home, an organization that helps the homeless population in New Mexico. I am sure that the job will come with a new set of challenges, but the Lord promises us that He is creating something new. The problems of the old jobs and experiences are in the past now. My husband can move forward with confidence that God will direct him.
As we pass through the desert along our drive, I contemplate what it meant for the children of Israel to have water spring from a rock. Our God is the ultimate provider. When things look doubtful, He always comes through. He gives us what we need to complete our journey. Amen.
