Do You See What I See?

Can you remember or identify that time in your life where you discovered that doing things the way you always have in the past just doesn't cut it anymore? What you thought was working either never did and you didn’t notice or suddenly, it has been brought to your attention. One day, either like a 2x4 whacked over your head or the culmination of lots of little messages it becomes intolerable.

First comes your awareness. Then it seems to grow and fester and become a bigger problem or annoyance. Suddenly it's always in your face and you can see how much it might be hurting you and even others in your life.

I see it in my own life and I hear it over and over again with my clients, friends and colleagues. I think it's Gods way of nudging us. I imagine Him saying; “Hey Sandy....I'm trying to show you something new here, do you want to do better, feel better and learn something new? Would you like to struggle less”? Hellooooo…you still there?

This brings Isaiah 43:19 to mind:

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.
