beLoved – New

So, I’m doing this 31 Day Writing Challenge on the theme of Beloved.

And, it’s Friday, so that means it’s time for a Five Minute Friday post.

This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt ties in with something I already wanted to touch on:


Ready? GO:

Fall TV reminds me it’s time for a fresh start.

Though school is year round (and a new quarter starts next week), work & practicum never break. So, it’s the return of Football & Fall Primetime TV that signals new beginnings to me…and my favorite time of year.

New Beginnings…

I guess that’s something I need right now; or rather, somethings I’m facing.

I wrote a previous FMF post about Goodbyes, where I said goodbyes were just hellos in disguise.

That’s what I’m believing for now:

A recent end of a relationship; new friends & fellowship. A job change; a chance at new ministry opportunities.

You see, God has more for me than settling & going through the motions.

And, He wants to make all things new in my life. Give me beauty instead of ashes, joy from mourning. Praise instead of despair (Isaiah 61:3).

When we read His word, we find He has a lot to say about goodbyes, and a lot to say about new beginnings.

And it is in these new beginnings we find ourselves really beginning to live as the Beloved.


“…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 & streams in the wasteland.”
– Isaiah 43:18-19
