Behold, I am doing a new thing

Behold, I am doing a new thing

This scene caught my eye the other night as I was driving home.

A busted up fence in the middle of a field of green.

Rain had poured down much of the afternoon leaving the horse farms bathed in the glow of the setting sun.

Just past this was a section of busted up fence and the once-green tree that had crushed it in a previous squall.

Brokenness in the wake of a storm.

And then there was this scene …

The sunbathed beauty that came in the wake of the storm had left the countryside glowing a bright green and the flowers bursting with blooms and life.

Isaiah 43:18-19 immediately came to mind.

rain soaked sun bathed flowers
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? Isaiah 43:18-19

It felt a bit like a rainbow moment. A sort of promise that even in the wake of a terribly strong storm, God can bring tremendous beauty. He can bring such healing and light that it’s almost brilliantly blinding.

I don’t know about you, but there are moments and seasons in the past few years that have felt like the worst of storms in my world.

You may be counted among those facing rising waters in the south or raging fires in the west or your own more private storms and battles.

Isaiah 43:18-19

May you find encouragement in knowing that God’s desire is for redemption. May you find Him doing a new thing right smack in the middle of where a mere moment before you only saw destruction and devastation.

May you see this new thing even today and see His healing more clearly in the light of a new day.

Have a blessed Sunday, friends!
