Hi! This is something very new for me as I have just begun and this is my first article! For a little introducing, my name is Julia! I have felt the need to get my voice out in the world, but I had not thought of the right way to do it. Then, finally it came to me! Now, I am here writing this! Nothing better to talk about than how great the feeling is when you start something new that you are excited about. I thought this was an appropriate topic to talk about, new starts. New starts are hard, and good all at the same time. But when you look at the grand scheme of things, new starts are something that are a blessing in disguise. When thinking about this, I realized something that makes it so clear as to why the Lord has us start fresh sometimes.
We are sent into new things and new journeys because this is what God has called us to do. God says we are created in the image of God, and we are on this earth to praise his name and spread it across nations. So, wherever you land, you are there for a reason. God put you there because he knows that this is somewhere that is either going to strengthen your faith, or it is going to be an opportunity for you to help bring those around you to God. You have a purpose where you are. However, new starts are also very intimidating because entering something so foreign and new is very scary. You must remember during these times, though, you will look back a year or so after and realize that you had nothing to worry about! Remember, it is always a part of your plan, and it is just one little turn in your journey of life. Take a deep breath, focus on your task at hand, and remember that you will get through it, no matter what it is.
