A New Bible...

Today, I bought a new Bible.... It is with some sadness that I put away my old one. I have used it for nine years now and it is marked up with all sorts of things that the Lord has shown me during these last 9 years. But, I am in a new season of my life..... a season where the old is good but will not do....I want fresh revelation, fresh insights, fresh touches, fresh annointings from the Lord. It seems like I would always find myself drawn to those marked up pages in my old Bible and reminsce about what the Lord showed me..... that is good, and yet, I don't want to live there. I want to remember, but I want to go on...and so today, I start afresh...and my heart carries so much excitement at what the Lord wants to reveal to me through this new copy of scripture I just acquired. So, I have put the "security blanket" away..... even though I will refer to it from time to time...and now eagerly look ahead.....

I just stopped by your blog and was encouraged by it. I, too, am a Pastor's wife and I, too, had to recently get a new Bible. I totally know what you mean. : )

May the Lord bless you in amazing ways. Have a wonderful Sunday.
