The year 2020 stopped many things around the world! At first I wanted life to resume so I could continue living normally but now that it’s been a while and I’ve adjusted to the “new normal” how could I ever go back? Losing old ways was painful, and irritating, and hard but now new ways that I love have come into my life. What I know is that life moves forward not backward and pining for what was only makes me live in the past. Courageously I step into the unknown newness while holding on to encouraging words and promises.
The newness is a crossroad that asks me, “Will I become improved or stay the same?” The answer depends on where I want to go. If I want eternal things I will become like my Lord, but if I don’t believe in eternal or religious things I’ll stay the same and just live my life. My choice is all about purpose and either I’ll set my course, like giving a boat direction, or if I have no course direction be tossed by every experience, like a wave of the sea that is driven with the wind.
The “new normal” wipes the slate clean of the past so that everything is new and gets redefined in the best way. All the unfairnesses and what I don’t like are gone now and everything is new. This new time is like being reborn; new and fresh. I look forward to the future with great anticipation!
