"He Makes All Things New" by Stacey Woodell Imbimbo

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. 
- Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭19‬ NIV

There is nothing exciting about getting old, broken, paper ripped crayons out to color.
But, if you have a new box of crayons the excitement tends to go up a notch.
Maybe it’s the perfectly pointed, paper intact, piece of perfection that makes the art project more enjoyable.
I read something poignant this week:
Maybe your paper is torn and you don’t have it all together.
Maybe you don’t feel perfectly pointed to Jesus.
But none of that matters, you STILL have purpose.
YOU are a Mom.
Color your child in the love of Christ.
Color them fiercely with grace.
Color them boldly with prayer.
A new crayon has yet to color a picture.
But your crayon is already at work.
