Things that have never been . . .

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”  Rainer Maria Rilke

Okay, it is the new year. Helloooo 2018.   What are things that have never been for you?  I am sitting here thinking this one over.  

1.   ...........

Humm, I am not coming up with much.  I have found in my life, all my experiences are unique and all of them required my growth or stretching to complete them.  I guess I have trusted in the Lord so much, I feel he has brought into my life so many AMAZING things.  Each of them timed in his way, and not my way.  

Granted sometimes I have gone off the road that he laid for me, and in one case it took me 19 years to get back to where I probably should have been, but even on the off roads, he walked with me and provided all I needed and then even more than I needed.  

Someone said they were glad to say goodbye to 2017.  I would rather welcome the new year and say "Thank you for what we are about to receive."  I look forward to those things that have never been, confident that He is apart of my journey.

"For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord."  Proverbs 8:35
