DAY 6: Excited for “something new”

I am excited for “something new” as I enter my wilderness, climb a hill, or ford stream. (Reference: Isaiah 43:19)

As I press on the trail of this journey, I sense that God has something new around a corner, over a hill, under a rock, or behind a tree. I don’t know any details about its features or how it will effect me, but it’s somewhere along this path.

It will be a precious unique gift. It will catapult me into the next adventure of my life. He has given me a hope for the future, as well as the strength, encouragement and perseverance to reach it.

I could speculate on what it may be, but I’d rather wait with my eyes, ears, and hands open ready to receive it from the Giver of Life. I want to trust and obey Him on this adventure.

I press on toward the upward goal of God’s calling upon my life; to strain and reach forward with my eyes fixed upon the One who blazes this trail. I will accept the pain to obtain the gain.

AS FOR MY PROGRESS thus far, it is going very well. I am settling into a new mindset of what I eat in order to lose the excess weight on my body. I am beginning to desire the workouts to strengthen my muscles. I am again comfortable with the characters and plot in writing the story that is in my heart and mind. Since I have been down similar trust roads in my lifetime, I know that this is all possible and the rewards are beyond anything I can imagine.

I am excited for the "something new."
