A spiritual smoothie…

"For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland." - Isaiah 43:19

While at my grandparents house I was craving a smoothie. Not, a store made smoothie, but one of my own. After asking my grandmother did she have a blender, I decided to go for a walk to the grocery store to purchase the items for my smoothie. 

Upon returning I met my grandparents, uncle and kids sitting outside under the tree. My uncle announced he found the  "blender" in the kitchen and left it on the table for me… 

To my surprise this is what was left for me... (smile, or laugh, it's okay)

Seeing this "blender" immediately made me think of the scripture noted above -"God is doing something new"… 

So I got in my car and went to purchase a new blender, so they could have one in the house for my visits home or for anyone else who may want to use it, which I doubt because they think green smoothies are a work of the devil, laugh out loud!!  In route to the store all I could hear was "New… New… New"! The louder it got, the clearer it became. 

Driving pass a unique house, a sign caught my attention. 

There's no caption needed…. But I will leave you with this….. Stop looking at your current situation. God knows what you need, when you need it. I believe I was supposed to go through all those shenanigans for a smoothie, not only to encourage myself but give hope to someone reading this entry.

The spirit of Newness is here, embrace it, speak it, walk in it. Don't look at the antiques, disfunction's and mishaps…. Just know HE is doing a new thing!!!
