ABC's of the Word..."N"

Pam at Grey Like Shuffie is our host for "ABC's of the Word". Be sure to to stop by her blog site by hitting the flowered icon above to read more scripture with the letter....
My "N" word is "NEW". I love the NEW. The smell of a NEW car or a NEW home, the feel of a NEW haircut, and who doesn't love a NEW outfit once in a while. But NEW can be deceiving...the car and home quickly get's used, the haircut grows out, and the outfit fades or quickly falls out of style.




There is one NEW that never grows old or wears out and that is the NEW we can experience in Christ. Each morning we awaken NEW in Christ. Each time we step out of bed it is a fresh start to meet Him and fulfil His purpose in for our life. This life of being a Christian, of walking in faith, of saying "Yes" to God daily is about being NEW. So may you be blessed with this promise of God...

"For I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries, and will bring you into your own land. I will also sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. I will cleanse you from all your impurities and all your idols. I will give you a NEW heart and put a NEW spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place My Spirit within you and cause you to follow My statutes and carefully observe My ordinances. Then you will live in the land that I gave your fathers; you will be My people, and I will be your God."~ Ezekiel 36:24-28 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Sweet assurance that no matter where our heart and mind has been, God can make it NEW! Read it in The Message translation....

"For here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to take you out of these countries, gather you from all over, and bring you back to your own land. I'll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I'll give you a NEW heart, put a NEW spirit in you. I'll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that's God-willed, not self-willed. I'll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands. You'll once again live in the land I gave your ancestors. You'll be my people! I'll be your God!" ~ Ezekiel 36: 24-28

I love this! Sorry, been out of the picture for a while. Been only posting here and there, but not reading as much because I have been doing my best to balance my life:) Not an easy task, but some things just take the back seat. I have missed you. Your words encourage me this morning as I am about to run out the door for a brisk morning walk. I am reminded that I can walk in the newness of today. Thank you so much Pam.

New...I think of the changing of the seasons and the newness-freshness-that seasons award.

Love to you and liking the thought of NEW as well.
