The Old Made New

As I’m searching for guidance from the big guy upstairs, I come across this passage:

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it sprints up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”

For months now I have been wondering why I feel so different. Why I have struggled with my own thoughts, appearance + purpose.

Until this very moment.

I realize now that God is constantly doing something new inside of us.

We are made to grow in all aspects of life. Over and over again.

We aren’t made to sit and be content for too long.

I have talked to a few pastors from my church lately about feeling disconnected. But I now think that maybe it’s because I was being separated for the next move.

Lately I’ve felt this burning desire for more.

More dedication to the youth group I serve.

More with the kids connect group at church.

More time for my kids and husband.

More time with God.

I have been telling my husband for weeks now that I am more than being a mom + hairstylist. Yes, I love my career. I get to use my chair to speak about Jesus. But I believe I’m called for more.

So starting now, I’m going to surrender to God for real. Lord, guide me where you want me. Help me to prioritize my life so that I’m doing your work.

We are to continually move forward, grow and become new.

If you’re feeling like a change is coming, go for it. Don’t hold back. Life is short. Our gifts are specific. Use them. Take a chance. I promise God will guide you where you need to go.

  1. Oh daughter…. I find your words and thoughts inspiring. I too have felt restless. Disconnected. I will take your lead and go for it as well. Change is needed and only God knows what is written in MY story. Thank you for putting into words what is on my heart. I love you and God is blessing you every day! Mom
