New Life in Progress

Isaiah 65:17-18
Lo, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; The things of the past shall not be remembered or come to mind. Instead, there shall always be rejoicing and happiness in what I create.

God is always about the business of loving and creating. The hurts and the pains of the past are shadows. They are gone. Where there is pain and suffering…God is reaching out to be a Loving Presence. Those who are open to God’s Presence in times of suffering can be transformed. It is usually when we are powerless to stop our pain…when our only hope is a Higher Power…that such transformation is possible. This is when our egos are forced to let go. When we are relying on God as fully as possible, we can become channels of God’s love to others in need. Know this: In each moment, God is renewing all things. Are you open to being a conduit of God’s loving creativity? How are you offering your gifts and talents to be a part of the flow of God’s goodness in building God’s kingdom?
