new {Five Minute Friday}

Butterly

new

A new brain, that doesn’t work overtime to worry, fear and fix.

A new forehead that isn’t marked to say something is wrong.

A new pair of eyes, that no longer looks past what’s in front of them to a faraway place.

A new collection of tears for miracles to come.

A new set of ears, that listens for that still small voice and only faintly hears the condemning shouts.

A new nose, not afraid to smell.  Not afraid to remember.  Not afraid to connect.

A new mouth, with brave words of hope and delightful kisses.

A new chin that’s raised high, and new shoulders back with a new confidence.

A new stomach that’s redefining hungry and full.

A new set of legs standing for what matters.

A new set of feet that go where guided, afraid but not alone.

A new body.  A new mind.  A new heart.

Created by God.  Restored by God.  Loved by God.

made new

Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!  2 Corinthians 5:17 AMP
