A New Thing
Next came the hair. I knew who I needed call and what I needed to do. A friend came over to cut my hair and I gave her complete freedon to do whatever she wanted. My only request was at least shoulder length. She began cutting and in the end we had shoulder length, with layers, thinned and long slanted bangs. I loved it! That evening I went to a friends house and we pampered ourselves with face masks, foot bathes and make overs. A couple weeks later I actually highlighted my hair (I had never dyed my hair before.) So now I had new clothes, new hair and make-up ideas.
During a Beth Moore study she talked about God doing a new thing. The next day after a Beth Jones study I was praying on the way home and one thing God spoke to me was "Sarah I am doing a new thing here." He had done a new thing on the outside..some much needed updating and now he was telling me it was time for a new thing on the inside. You can read more about that in my post titled Spiritual Growth- Novemeber Archive. But it was cool. I could feel this new thing and it was empowering.
I don't think it ends there. I think he is continuing to do new things in my life. Take this blog for instances. It's new to me but it so blesses me. I dare say a new ministry.
At first I wondered if it was right to want a change. But, I think now it wasn't only right but God-ordained. I know not the plans he has for me but I know that this new thing....it is a part of his plan.
Isaiah 43:19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
