Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corenthians 5:17, New King James Version)
The rain was coming down in sheets. It was washing away all the dirt and dust of the day. The downpoor was terentual. As I listened to it pound against my window, I recognized that still, small voice. "Jamie, let me make all things new for you." Still, I wanted to carry the load. "Jamie, give me the pain and hurt. Let me make all things new." "Yes, Lord, Yes!" Are you needing to be made new? Is your life in shambles? Put your pain, your hurt, into His capable hands today. Let Him wash away the dirt and dust of your life. Let Him give you a new start. Answer Him with a resounding "yes" to a new life.
Father, thank you for being the author of new life. Thank you that we don't have to walk around in the dirt and dust. Thank you for offering us a new life! Amen!
