Just one month and two weeks into the new year, we are still very much in the season of “new” things. New jobs, schools, clothes, hopes, dreams, relationships, ventures, plans and on it goes.
At rubies and in my personal life I find myself in a place of starting many new things, and I see God indeed making all things beautiful in His own time and way. It has definitely been in His own way not in the way I would have brought it about. It has been an intense and still is an intense time of pain for me after the loss of my dad two months ago. But God has dotted this path of sorrow with unexpected and the most beautiful of blooms, some small, some huge and vibrant. Beauty for Ashes, I know He gives, I didn’t know this was how it would look like for me. gladness for sorrow, I know He gives, I just didn’t expect it this way. At an unexpected end, where then and even now, I am often unsure of what the future will look like, God brings a beautiful beginning. A calm indisputable reassurance that he truly is “I am”, The Beginning and The End, the One who knows the end from the beginning.
My unexpectedly Beautiful beginnings may not look anything like what He wants to do in your life. But my prayer is that you get to know and live in the joy of new seasons made Beautiful by God’s hand working in, and bringing them about. Thus making them truly special, truly what you need, truly joyful and a blessing that adds no sorrow, truly His own.
