July 20th: New Beginnings

SunRise

Endings are difficult.

They can bring pain or they can bring relief.

Either way, they bring change and change is not easy.

Change can be scary.

It can seem so overwhelming.

You may be fearful that the end is truly the end. That nothing else of importance will ever happen in your life. That there is no reason to have hope.

You had hope before…and where did it get you?

To an ending.

Yes, it is an ending… but it is also a new beginning.

A friend once said to me, “When something ends, it leaves a void in your life. When you have a void, something else comes and fills in the place that has been left empty.”

Your new beginning will bring you new things.

Yes…it will be scary but isn’t it exciting?

Your life is now full of new beginnings. You will meet new people. You will walk new paths. You will find new ways to experience life. Things you never thought of doing… you will do.

Endings are hard but remember… they bring new beginnings and new beginnings can bring you happiness and joy that you may never have imagined.

“Dear God, let me see this ending as truly a new beginning. Let me be open to the new people and experiences you lay before me. Help me to walk with excitement into my future instead of in fear.”

One thought on “July 20th: New Beginnings

  1. I’m still anxious each day when I awake , but a new part of that anxiousness is hope.
    Found that had left me as I went through my divorce last summer.
    There are still days that I find myself feeling unsure and bit clear on how to spend my time , but as you’d mentioned earlier, sometimes I take it hour by hour to decide.
