5 Minute Friday

5 minutes of focused writing on the prompt...NEW

'Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation.  The old has gone, the new has come.'  2 Corinthians 2:17


A new day, a new life.  When Christ came into my heart, He made me new.  My perspective of the world around me was different.  I stopped seeing my space through worldly glasses and began to see with eternal ones.  The grass was greener, the flowers brighter, the people a little more desperate...

The longing in my soul became hungry for all things new in Him.  My desire became for the Word, the Kingdom.  Not what I could do for myself, but what could I do for Him?  I wanted to, and still do, make a difference in His name here on this earth.  Right where I am.

Today is a new day.  His mercy is new this morning.  I am lifting my eyes to Him in anticipation of what He will do through me this brand new day.


Linking up with Gypsy Mama and 5 minute Friday...
