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)
