A Prayer This Week — part 5

November 19, 2021

God, help me to choose to embrace the new things

that lead me to unseen blessings.

Dr. Howard Lange taught me, “Not everything that’s new is good, and not everything that’s good is new.”

He regularly dispensed wisdom like that in the midst of his pediatric allergy practice.

A temptation for some of us when we were young was to want to jettison anything not fresh and shiny.

A temptation for some of us as we get some miles on us is to want to clutch desperately to the familiar and well worn.

Our prayer this week, from Western Uganda (confused? Check out Monday’s blog), has us not just looking across a chasm at the new things but has us asking our Lord to enable us to embrace the new things.

What might some of those be for you?

As always I’d love to hear from you, and look forward to meeting you back here tomorrow.
