Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isa. 43:18-19
I love this verse as it gives me encouragement in new beginnings. We can’t live in the past even though our past effects us. No matter what age or stage we are currently walking or running or wheeling through, there is a newness about today. A freshness can be found even in our difficulties.
This was one of my memory verses this year – February’s first verse in 2011. You can read about my memorization plan for the year here.
