A collection of Bible verses about new beginnings and starting new. God is doing a new thing!
God is always doing something in our lives. He’s wanting us to draw near to Him and be transformed. And there are seasons when God does a new thing. It’s a shift, a breakthrough, a change, a restoration that occurs in our lives.
Whether you are in a season of new beginnings or in a place of transition praying and hoping for a new season these Bible verses will encourage and uplift you.
I know for me being in transition can be super hard…you know you are at the edge of change but still in a place of unknowing. It reminds me of the quote from Corrie Ten Boom…
When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.~ Corrie Ten Boom
That new beginning is that light at the end of that tunnel! It’s coming…God is faithful to bring something new and fresh into your life. I hope these Bible verses encourage and uplift you in that and that no matter what He is working on behalf. (Romans 8:28)
And if you are experiencing that new season…may God richly bless you in it by you drawing closer to Him, and experience His peace and joy in all things.
