~ Isaiah 43:18-19 (NRSV)

                 I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?"

                         I was exited to teach English in a foreign country
                     I struggled with leaving my job and selling my posse-
                     ssions. Once I decided to go, however, I moved from
                     my apartment to a temporary living arrangement with
                     friends. A few days before leaving, I sold my car. After
                     the new owner took it, a strange feeling came over me
                     when I looked in my handbag: I realized I had no keys!
                     These signs of my former identity ---- house key, mailbox
                     key, office keys, and car keys --- were now in someone el-
                     se's handbag or pocket. I felt a mixture of loss and freedom.

                         Then I realized that if I insist on holding on to the old or
                     familiar, such as a comfortable job or lifestyle, I may miss
                     the new thing GOD desires for me. GOD is in the business
                     of making things new. By GOD's grace, we have a new Heart,
                     a new Spirit, and new Identity. We have GOD's promise that
                     we are becoming New Creations in the light of Christ. Old thoughts,
                     motives, and ways of viewing ourselves pass away. GOD plants
                     in us new Possibilities, new Desires, and Hope that does not disa-
                     ppoint us. (see Romans 5:5)
