New You

You are a new you with every new moment. You cannot leave a conversation, finish a book, digest an apple, and hear your steps without experiencing a new moment. Our brain design processes new and relives moments in memories. Even then the reliving memory is a new thought.

It is impossible to escape the new. Each and every living moment is creating new.

Research tells us our brains are ever-changing. Our brains work harder on new tasks to figure out what our bodies need to do to, say, manipulate our skis so we can glide down that hill that first time. Or how to grip our chopsticks to pick up that rice, how to cross our knitting needles to create that new stitch, how to form our mouth to speak that new word, or how to create that graphic in our new software program. When our brain figures out the process, it no longer needs to work so hard. However, a healthy brain is not like computer software that is limited to it’s pre-programmed ability. An ‘a’ typed on a keyboard into a word program will always be an ‘a.’  But our walking ability can also be taught to expand to a run, to dance, to skip, — the sequence of moves our brain can be taught is limitless.

We are not designed to be stuck.

We are designed for the new. 

 We are designed for the new. 

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

2 Corinthian 4:16

 

 We are designed to not fear the new.

 

Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:22-24

 We are designed for new growth even in old age.

They still will bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright: he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” Psalm 92:14-15

 

Every moment brings in the new.

Never lose hope for the new as it is impossible to not be a new you

  1. Lynn, I love this take on NEW. There was so much in here that had me nodding and smiling. I needed this post on this day where I’m dealing with some of the same ole challenges. New. yes.

    This stood out to me:
    “We are not designed to be stuck.

    We are designed for the new.”

    Thanks so much for your life-infusing words, friend!

    1. I liked that line too, Jeanne! Learning about how God designed us physically helps me discover how He did make us to live out His ways He calls us to. Same ole challenges can sure seem like the same ole but it is a new moment for you who has experienced more since the last time of that same ole experience. haha! It is hard to wrap our minds around that! Have a blessed day!

  2. This is lovely and hope-filled. I love knowing I am becoming new even in old age and I don’t need to fear new growth. Thank you for the scriptures to accompany each point. Hope you are doing well, my friend!

  3. I’m another who is very thankful I can grow more beautiful on the inside even while my outer self deteriorates–as I surrender to the Way Maker of transformation. Indeed, there is energizing hope in the realization every moment brings in the new. Thank you, Lynn!

  4. I don’t know how I missed this, Lynn. I even checked back in my mail, but I can’t find it. Anyway, I love this message. The verses, words, and photos breathe hope into my heart. Thank you, my friend. Love and blessings to you!
