Behold! All Things New~

It's seen in a sunrise,

as the sun throws backs the covers of the horizon and slowly, sleepily peeks out in beams of light.

It's seen in a flower,

as the petals uncurl from the center of who they are and regally, gracefully unveil their beauty in bloom.

It's seen in a prisoner,

as a heart rebounds from the events of the past and willfully, hopefully enters through an open door.

It's seen in a prayer,

as words ascend from the lips of a sinner and immediately, boldly reach the throne room of Heaven.

It's seen in a heart,

as grace washes away the stains of the soul and amazingly, triumphantly ushers in newness of life.

A new morning.

A new blessing.

A new beginning.

A new heart.

It's seen in the cross,

as Jesus' blood cleanses the sins of the world and mercifully, lovingly invites us to be

N E W ~

Forget the things that happened in the past.
Do not keep on thinking about them.
I am about to do something new.
It is beginning to happen even now.
Don't you see it coming?
Isaiah 43:18-19
