There’s something new and beautiful about a homecoming & yet a new beginning, all in one. Pathways are reopened in the heart with a new outlook, and beautiful memories lie and wait in the remembering… the walking down old roads as a completely new person, in Jesus. 💕
As I drive these old roads, ride the old trails, smell the old smells … something is different, and it’s me.
I was afraid that living where I grew up would somehow make me feel small, like a child.. or remember things I wish I could have done differently- a widescreen video of the outtakes from my past life- footage of the mistakes I’d made.
Instead… I have nothing but worship in my heart for the God who enables me to remember all the sweet memories of what made me, “me”.
We all have a journey and it’s rough, but Immanuel, Jesus, is God with us. He is awakening a new outlook on days gone by- because he is love, and light. He is rescuer, healer, friend.
Today, I choose to not only love new seasons, but also to praise him for the ones I’ve already lived.
