Doing A New Thing
Written by Stephanie Plumb on June 12, 2018
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
In the last year, I had a baby, left my job, moved to a new home, walked through a life threatening illness with a loved one (who came out on the other side with a clean bill of health, praise Jesus), married off my baby sister and moved her to the other side of the country, and came back to work here at WDJC hosting Evenings with Stephanie.
That’s a lot of new things springing up one right after another, and it was kind of hard NOT to perceive them as they were happening. The Lord must have known that in my sleep deprived state of new motherhood I would have no time for subtlety.
New things can be exciting. They can also be scary. They can be stressful. They can require a lot of work. Maybe you’re like me, and change freaks you out—this past year has been a doozy for sure. But when new things come from the Lord, they are incredible. They spring up like they were always supposed to be there because God’s timing is perfect. Our God is in the business of making all things new, so when new things happen, whether they seem good or bad at first, it’s always an opportunity for Him to move in a big way.
You’ve probably noticed a lot of new things happening at WDJC. We’ve been around for 50 years, so new things were bound to happen sooner or later. Our new morning show, Roxanne & Ace: Bold and Unashamed kicked off after Memorial Day, we welcomed Russell P. Wall back to the station as the host of The Way Home in the afternoons, and Mark Harvard is rocking out our Saturday mornings on AM with Mark. I’m so excited to keep things rolling and do a new thing here on our encouragement page. I hope you’ll join us every month for words of wisdom and inspiration from me, friends of the station, and the hosts you love to hear on the air.
What is a new thing that the Lord has done in your life over the last year? I’d love to hear about it!
