Experiencing something new….

VincyWhen the “New” isn’t what you expected….

Have you ever traveled to a new place? Scored while playing a new sport? Walked a new hiking trail? Put on a new pair of beautiful shoes? What happened when you took that step….something CHANGED.Your perspective before the “new” became different after the experience….So what happens when the “new” isn’t welcome? What happens when the “new” isn’t what you thought it would be? I will use my life to represent…what happens when the 6th baby isn’t happy…at all…ALL the time? What happens when the oldest of 6 gets hurt…BAD…and goes through major surgery?

It’s still new.…it still shifts my perspective…it’s the CHANGE part that grounds down my soul at times. It’s precisely then, when I cannot see the good in the new. When my perspective only sees the negative in the experience….

then, finally…I sit back and look through the RIGHT lens….here’s what God says…..

Isaiah 43:19 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”

I have to admit…I don’t see it.
The best part is this……HE doesn’t WAIT for me to see it…HE JUST DOES what He does so well.

He “makes a path through the wilderness…(of my heart, of my marriage, of my parenting, of my LIFE…)”

He creates RIVERS in the dry wasteland…(of my mind, of my soul, of my existence…)”

So when the change begins, when the new isn’t what I thought it would be, or what I thought it SHOULD be…I will let Him have his way….I will let Him do a NEW thing…He gave me His Word……”He has already begun”….

I am Vincy Willamowski, a wife for 15 years and a mother of six beautiful kids. I've been a radio personality for over 17 years. For a long time I felt my "calling" was simply speaking to people over the airwaves. Things have changed in the last few years. I felt and feel led to share my life story with as many people as I can. The story that God has given me isn't pretty, nor is it always easy to repeat, but through it His grace has turned my "mourning into dancing!" My life verse is Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I believe God's plans for each and every one of us are GOOD! What seems impossible, can be made whole. What feels like the end of the road can turn into the beginning! His future isn't always how we pictured our own, but once we catch His vision, we can finally LIVE! For so long I was burdened by guilt and fear, two triggers in my life that had control. God has given me insights into how to disable to enemy, and cause him to run in fear from the God that is within me! I hope to speak life, God's wonderful life, into each and every heart that I come into contact with. May God bless you all richly!

  1. Great post, Vincy! I agree that it about perspective. One thing we also know is that we can trust The Lord in all things, even when our natural minds don’t understand He always wants His best for us.
