Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

A new season allows us to turn the page and begin again. We survived the cold days of winter and we have begun to experience hints and signs of spring.  With a new season, it is time to clean out the residue of the last season.  All the heart clutter has to go.   Any hard feelings and unforgiveness have to be released.  Any fear and anxiety has to be let go.  We are a seeking a clean heart with our trust firmly in the Lord.  Sweeping out emotions not aligned with God creates new space.  Clearing out the clutter of our hearts and minds, gives Him the space to do the new thing He desires for us.  Hope, joy, peace and love are in His plans for us.  Spring cleaning clears the way for Him to step in and move closer to His purpose for us.

For I am about to do something new.

See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?

I will make a pathway through the wilderness.

I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

Isaiah 43:19


Something New

We are on the brink of something new.  Our Heavenly Father seeks to create vibrant life in the dry and stagnant places in our lives.  He wants to revive the broken places in our hearts and minds and transform them into something new.  Newness is a starting place for a life that we could not have imagined.  It is a space where peace and purpose thrive.  Newness can completely replace the old patterns of thinking and the old broken cycles of behavior that keep us stuck.  It’s a new day.  It’s a new time for our lives.  Let us fully welcome the Lord into our hearts and into every aspect of our lives.  It’s time for something new and we are thankful.

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!  II Corinthians 5:17
