What is it about cycles that fascinate us? Our need to calculate linear time in a fashion that helps us track, catalogue, and monitor our existence is wired in us. Think about the creation story; six days create, one day rest and then renewal. But perhaps it was John the Revelator that heard first and began to understand this need for renewal.
“And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Rev. 21:5
Day 39 – Will you pray and seek God’s renewal?
The only true sense of newness that any of us ever need is that which comes from the Lord. Goals, ambitions, and dare I say resolutions must all be weighed against what Jesus has for us. Our sense of identity and purpose must be married to the eternal tapestry the Father is weaving. Our desire for a fresh perspective is part of how God designed us. Our job then, is to wed that desire to activities and actions that are Kingdom building.
