'I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I am making a road in the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland' Isaiah 43:19
With a new year comes new rivers and new roads. The way of the wise winds upwards, we travel our winding road until we are fully undone before God, with all of life's purpose unfolding along the way. Gushing from Heaven, we are filled with living water, the presence of God himself, flowing from our hearts. The winding road prevents us from seeing ahead too far and the changes that await, but faith fuels our journey and the knowledge that the river is never far away. Fruit trees growing alongside the river feed us and their leaves heal our wounds. The road and the river lie in wilderness and wasteland but we hold no fear, for we are being filled with the Holy Spirit, even in the most trailing times. So delight! God is about to do something new, in fact, he has already begun.. It's all rivers and roads until we reach Him.
