Special guest, Bryn, Shawna’s daughter, brings some great insights about the different aspects of diving into something new as we continue our conversation this week about how God makes all things new. She shares how new things require breaking in & how important it is to stick with it through the uncomfortable times to get to the benefit of the new practice, like reading your bible. Bryn shares how, good and bad, new experiences can have an eternal impact. She shares with us a personal experience that changed her forever. Sometimes before saying “Yes” to God’s calling in our lives we have to say “no” to other good things. Bryn helps us to discern the difference between good things we can be a part of and what we’re called by God to do. New things also require taking a risk. It can be hard to step out of our comfort zones to experience what God has for us. God is always calling us to new things and we can expect He is right now. Sometimes the new things we encounter are not by choice at all but rather an obstacle that seems to be in our way. How do we respond in a God honoring way to those new experiences? Lastly, Bryn shares how new things can be exciting and scary all at the same time. New is unavoidable. Be brave. Be obedient. In today’s conversation you’ll be encouraged to step into the new with confidence in who God is!
