He’s doing a NEW thing!

Dwelling on the past and what has happened there is where I seem to be spending most of my time lately. Past relationships that didn’t work out (thanking God now that they didn’t). Insecurities that I didn’t know were still there, pop up out of nowhere. Wondering if I am ever going to get out of this season of waiting. Although, I feel like in every season there is a period of waiting. Being uncertain of my future, when I thought I had my future put together and figured out.

I thought I was doing pretty good at trusting Him and letting Him in, but then I feel Him tugging at my heart to let go of the things I didn’t know I was holding on so tightly to. Once I feel at peace and say okay God, here comes the enemy with his evil schemes, and putting thoughts of doubt in my head and here I am letting him. Believing his lies over God’s truth. Am I the only one that seems to be weak, feeling guilty, and ashamed that I let the enemy in and overtake my thoughts?

I feel like in this season of my life I am learning to not let the enemy so easily steal my joy and to CHOOSE joy in every situation. To be patient in this season of waiting for what He has in store for me, next. And man, is it hard. I have never prayed or cried so much in these past few months, than I have in my life, but He has been faithful before, why would He not be faithful again?

Although the enemy is always planning, always one step behind me trying to steal my joy. The enemy is ALWAYS behind, never in front. My God has gone before me, my God is in front of me making my paths straight and behind me, watching my back. He is constant and faithful. And that is the truth that I am going to hold on so tightly to. He’s got me, it’s my choice to believe the enemy’s lies or God’s truth. I fail all of the time, but there He is ready to pick me up. He is always in pursuit of me even when I am not always in pursuit of Him. He is doing a new thing! There is joy and promise in the waiting. ❤

“Forget the former things. Do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. – Isaiah 43:19
