Isaiah 65:17 - “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.”
I should have listened to my aunt that day, but I was 12 years old and very impatient. The drive from Maryland to Florida was a long one, but I was up for the journey. It was my cousin’s birthday and we were headed to Florida to celebrate. We packed food, drinks, a few books and other forms of entertainment; loaded up the car and hit the road. My aunt had given us spending money and my mom sent me money the week before. I was all set to have a great time.
"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." - 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9
Like so many people across the country, I sat in front of my television horrified. An amalgam of fear, sadness, and disappointment completely overtook me. I asked myself over and over… “Could this really be happening”? As the reality of it all started to sink in, I couldn’t do anything but cry. I cried a very deep, mournful, uncontrollable cry. How could this happen?
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
“Shame on you!” A small, yet extremely hurtful phrase. Some of us may have heard this growing up. Some of us may still be hearing it now. Maybe we’re not the ones hearing it, but the ones saying it. Shame on you for going there... for doing that... for talking to him or her... for dating them... for doing what you knew you had no business doing. Shame on you!
Genesis 1:2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the waters.
I was so excited about moving into my very first apartment. Coming out of a very rough situation, I was looking forward to having a fresh start. I stood in the middle of the empty, carpeted living room. My eyes traced the surface of the bare white walls. I had nothing to name, except the clothes on my back and my peace of mind. I was happy, but I knew my apartment couldn’t stay empty.
