Do not dwell on the past by Maria Egilsson

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” (Isa 43:18-19)

The fire burns low in the hearth, flames flicker with hope and life.  But when the fire is spent, nothing remains but ash.  What once burned hot is now cold.

There are times you may feel cold as you sit among the ashes that no longer glow with life. Everyone faces situations of trial, suffering and grief. But God promises that even in seasons like this, He is at work. When you are at your lowest ebb, He is there. It is His loving kindness and compassion that lifts the sense of hopelessness and the weight of despair. Every morning He gives fresh mercies that sustain and encourage the weary one just like He did for the Israelites in the desert. Our manna is the bread of His word. God is making the way for something new.

Sometimes we have to let go of situations – wanting what isn’t anymore. Letting go of “old dreams”, previous “fires” allows closure to come and a chance for something new. Sometimes what seems to be an end is the start of a new beginning. Even Jesus, while on the cross, stated: “It is finished”. Redemption could only come when the work of the old was done. Take hope. The hearth will not remain cold and full of gritty ash. He will rekindle the flame once again.
