Pay special attention today to the new thing(s) God is doing in your midst. What transformation are you and the community around you experiencing?
Ask your spouse or friend, “What new thing is happening in your life?” Perhaps you’ll also be able to speak to where you see the transformation happening in your life.
God you are making all things new. I praise you for the Spirit’s work in my life and the lives of the people I love. Continue to help us grow in grace. Amen.
