New Thing by Joshua Cole
“Behold, I will do a new thing! Now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” Isaiah 43:19
Sometimes the biggest fight in your life is when you have to cut the umbilical cord. The thing that once gave you life has died and if you don’t cut the cord you could die too.
As I bring a close to this year I have found it to be such a struggle with trying to push forward. God is changing my whole face of ministry for me and how I thought it was going to be and the channel or vehicle in which it was going to go through. Today I was feeling some kind of way as I was having to go back to my home church that I haven’t been to in almost 5 yrs and now someone else resides there. Even though I was going there to support someone else it was more about me. Before going into the new year God said that I was going to have to physically go back to the place that once gave me life and cut the cord. I didn’t realize that some part of me was still holding on as I would try to search for something that somewhat resembled what was not knowing it was hindering my growth because I was not accepting fully where and what God had for me now. I was physically moving forward, but subconsciously I still had one hand holding on. When a baby is born one of the 1st things they do is cut the cord. Now that the baby is outside of the womb it no longer will be able to feed or exist off of what it use to because it is in a new environment. When something is out of its element it eventually dies unless it reconnects and adapts to the new environment that it is in. Like a new-born baby it now has to adapt and live outside the womb. You can’t move forward if you are still connected to a dead thing, your past or looking back. It is now just a building but every experience, everything I learned lives within me and it is for me to carry on by moving forward and using that which is within me. #CLEANTHISHOUSE
