Day 6: New Normal


It happened to her

and she had no idea it was going to happen.

ONCE UPON A TIME

she was just living her life

as it was~

and then it changed

forever.

She is now living in the

NEW NORMAL

that she has never lived in before~

from the moment

HE said~

"Daughter your faith has healed you. Go in peace" (Luke 8:48)

Her

ONCE UPON A TIME

when she was labeled as an outcast

and now

JESUS

called her

Daughter,

Healed her

and gave her permission

TO GO~

to walk, to depart, to journey~

To go where she has never gone before

because she is no longer who she used to be.

Now what?

Living in the NEW NORMAL.

Her NEW NORMAL was great as she was now healed,

yet I bet it was hard to navigate the world from her new eyes

and from the eyes of those who always saw her as an outcast.

But HE saw her as HIS Daughter.

It happened to her and

she had no idea it was going to happen.

ONCE UPON A TIME she was just living her life

as it was and then it changed forever.

She is now living in the NEW NORMAL

that she has never lived in before~

A precious friend of mine

whose

NEW NORMAL

is a

NEW NORMAL

that she wishes wasn't her

NEW NORMAL

as

her life dramatically changed,

due to circumstances beyond her control.

Now what?

How do you navigate life in a

NEW NORMAL.

Are you Living in a NEW NORMAL

that you wish you weren't?

How do you take that next step into the

NEW NORMAL

with your pain, hurt or shame?

How do you take that next step into the

NEW NORMAL

with your grief, bitterness, or anger?

Oh how hard it is

especially when you don't want to,

but then you hear your name spoken

DAUGHTER/SON~

GO IN PEACE.

HIS soft whisper

talking to your precious heart,

tenderly calling you

HIS own

because

HE does not send you alone.

HE walks side by side

with you, in you, through you

so you don't have to do it yourself.

I can't explain it as it is beyond yourself

because

when

JESUS calls you by name

you will never be the same

and will always be living in a

NEW NORMAL

as you take every step

BELIEVING & RECEIVING

whose you are

as HE stands before you

with opened arms

saying,

"Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid" (Matthew 14:27)
