God never tires of retelling His story in surprising ways--old but always new, familiar but never trite or worn or contrived. Old hydrangea blossoms will give way to new--new that look remarkably like these tired blooms from last year, but so unlike--so full of life and vigor, so vital in the great retelling of the glory of God.
God is never satisfied with what we used to be because His story--the revelation of Jesus--is not complete. He is committed to performing His good work in us until the day of Christ. In that hope we grow, but don't grow weary.
We can afford to let go of the past--not just our failures, but also our successes--because we're so confident in the goodness of God, so certain that, as Oswald Chambers said, "With God the best is always yet to be."
How will God tell His story through you tomorrow?
