At my coffee shop they gave me a mug with leaves on it, which might indicate turning over a new leaf. When it comes to coffee, may it never be. I remain your coffee purist only drinking my coffee black. None of the fancy repurposed soda, aka latter, frappes etc, for me.
However, with only two months left in the year, I am amazed by the new things Jesus has brought into my life this year. He has brought new Hispanic friends into my life and into my Sunday morning group. One year ago, I had no idea I would meet some wonderful Ukrainian friends. I love being at my new school in the mornings.Also thanks to generous people, I have a new car.
One thing I started the other day with a bible verse that was the verse of the day on Bible Gateway, is letting Jesus show me a writing prompt. I don’t know how long I will do it, but it feels fun. That post was- True Lasting Legacy. So while it lasts, the time I post will vary, I will wait for the prompt. Today it was the coffee mug. 🙂
Why am I doing this? I do not want to become stale in life. I want to keep looking for newness that God brings to us. As Isaiah 43:19 says:
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.
God can do a new thing in our lives no matter what our circumstances are. Even the most desolate lives, he can bring newness and restoration. We can look to him in every situation.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

God can do a new thing in our lives no matter what our circumstances are. That’s my word.
Jesus is with you sweet daughter and working on your behalf
So glad for the new things God is doing. His mercies are new every morning and great is his faithfulness!
New mercies every morning is such a blessing
Yes, they are!
I want to keep looking for the newness that God brings in our lives – Amen to that.
It makes life much more interesting
You know, it appears to be a day of new things that God is giving to his sons and daughters.
I read with a smile for you, that you received God’s gifts! God bless.
Thank you my friend 🙂
God is always doing new things.
Unfortunately due to my adrenals I can’t drink coffee like that…but I like your enthusiasm! I love tea though 🙂 Thank you for the reminder that God is doing a new thing, the analogy of the leaf is also nice. Thank you for this warm and uplifting post. God bless you.
Timely post!! Just today I was thinking I should begin switching my routine up at home for a fresh feeling! Not sure what it looks like yet!!
Maybe it means letting Paige do the housework and you relax 🙂
Tell I said that and see what she says lol
Praise the Lord. Behold all things are new. For a moment when I saw the title I thought you were going to give up on coffee drinking.
give up on coffee?
May it never be lol
With God all things are possible! He makes all things new.
