Journeying through this past week I have encountered people whose lives have recently been in places of trauma, loss, or lack.
The vibrant TRUTH of what it means to have a new beginning has really impacted me. The past is past…yes, it will be remembered. The desert time can never be forgotten BUT what happens when a new beginning truly inspires a person to start again ie to be BORN AGAIN into the Promise this new life, and the new experiences this life can bring is truly incredible.
My hope and indeed prayer for anyone reading this today is that if you are beginning again, contemplating a change or still working through a life that has changed dramatically because of circumstances, I would like to simply say that the image above symbolises for me the absolute beauty that can and does come from circumstances that once appeared to be bleak and hopeless.
The same can be for each one of us. Circumstances will change. May we ever look for the promises of new Life, and Hope and Beauty .
Look up! Look around! Focus on beauty and share this reality with others. It is the great gift you can give to another. Beauty and Love – balm to human aches and loss.
Live your life aiming for purpose and always delighting in the hope of unexpected possibilities!
