The Old Has Gone.

Changed. Transformed. New.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Today, I start down a new journey.  A new path.

Fly! My Little Butterfly!

It amazes me how God ends something and then reveals something new.  He ended with Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 12:2 and today as I submit my new post on a new blog – He uses the same Scriptures.

So it is only appropriate to share my last blog on Rest for your Soul in my new blog:

“On April 12, 2017, in my quiet moments alone with my Heavenly Father, I lingered a little longer than usual.  I have learned to treasure these moments alone with Him.  I was sitting in my favorite place – His Lap -and He whispered to me, ‘Rest for Your Soul is coming to an end.  It has served the purpose of our many chats – words written.’

What a beautiful moment.  Lingering there.  Resting there in His Arms.  In His Lap.

Then I was prompted to turn to Psalm 57:1 in my Bible – I wasn’t sure that I wanted it to come to an end – but He gently nudged me and said, ‘Look.  Listen.  Then obey.’

Psalm 57:1: ‘Show me favor, God, show me favor; for in you I have taken refuge.  Yes, I will find refuge in the shadows of your wings until the storms have passed.’ (CJB)

The storm has passed.  I have come to realize that it is within the ‘storms’ that I grow more in the Lord.  That I have learned how to trust in Him more.

Then before I left that restful quiet moment with Him, God spoke words to me that He has never spoken before:

‘Arise my little butterfly and fly but remember to always find refuge in the shadows of my wings.’

I have pondered these words for a couple of days – what will my next path look like?  Will I find other butterflies along this path?  What have I been chosen to do?

I will wait – wait upon the Lord and cherish the coming months up ahead.”

The old has gone, the new is here!

My God is faithful to His Word.
