New Beginnings, A New Chapter. As I leave Colorado today, my daughter, Claire and her husband, Jeff, are both settled in at their new home in Ft Collins, Colorado. A new beginning and a new chapter in both their lives. However, this also creates a new beginning and a new chapter in my life as well. As a parent, from the time our children are born we prepare them for the day when they will leave and create their own life and home. We are continuously moving each day into new seasons of our lives. Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.”
As in all new seasons, our only certainty and security is found in God. To Him, we must cling as we journey forth over every hill and valley ahead.
If you find yourself in the starting blocks of a new beginning, placed there by God, choose to trust Him no matter what. Know that He has purposed your journey, that He is in control and that He has a plan. If you remain obedient to God, you will see His purposes and blessings unfold and receive all the abundance and reward that He has for you, ultimately forgetting all the injustices that occur along the way.
God’s calling for believers is a mighty one. As a follower of Christ, your purpose on this earth will continue to expand, no matter how good the chapter was before.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
