Something New

WHen I think of the wisdom and scope of his plan I fall down on my knees and pray to the Father of all the great family of God - some of them already in heaven and some down here on earth - that out of his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you the mighty inner strengthening of his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love; and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God's children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it.And so at last you will be filled up with God himself.

Now glory be to God who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of - infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. May he be given glory forever and ever through endless ages because of his master plan of salvation for the Church through Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 3:14-21 (TLB)


Kim Bond, from Missouri, and her spouse have two amazing children. As they grew older and more independent, Kim was thrilled by her increasing freedom. But when she realized they no longer needed her assistance as much, Kim felt a little depressed. She worried her life would continue without anything new. Then the Lord encouraged Kim to volunteer in her community. Since then, Kim has volunteered as a Bible study leader, tutor, mentor, and served in other roles. She has learned a lot, met many people, and experienced many new things.

Some stages of life can cause us to fall into monotonous cycles. The lack of variety in our lives might cause us to lose hope and become depressed. Yet we must always remember God has more for us. God knows us far better than we even know ourselves. When we feel stuck in our routine, we can ask our loving Father to show us something new. It might be a fresh wasy of thinking, a new way to live, or another unexpected change for the better. Every day is a gift the Lord has made for us to rejoice in. God has new mercies for us today, tomorrow, and far into the future.


Prayer: Almighty God, forgive us for letting fear hold us back. Help us to accept the new experiences you offer us with joy and courage, in Jesus' name. Amen.
