Spring is just around the corner. Which is why I decided I need a face lift.
It’s not what you’re thinking. (Ok, maybe I am a bit vain, but I’m not getting plastic surgery any time soon.)
I’m talking about a face lift for my blog!
Why does a face lift make me “feel” better? After all, it’s the same blog. The same content. The same message.
But it still feels new.
It’s like trying a new recipe. Putting on a new dress. Drinking a fresh cup of coffee.
Remember what it felt like to get a new pair of shoes as a kid? You could run faster and jump higher. And my own children are no different. Sure, they may be materialistic (like the rest of America) but I also believe something else is going on inside of them. Something deeper.
I am convinced there is a God-given desire inside of all of us that wants to be made new.
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” (Rev 21:5)
And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT)
Can you feel it?
It’s that tug inside our hearts that tells us there is something more. Something beautiful. Even something new.
Maybe it’s time for a face lift.
