A New Work
As the sun begins to set for many of you in this academic year, it has just started to rise again for me.
I have just returned from six months maternity leave. A friend shared some beautifully encouraging words with me this week, that whilst I am not starting a new job, I am coming back to a familiar space as a different person.
These words have sat with me all week, and have reminded me of the way that God is continually doing a "new work" in us as we move in familiar places--how all of a sudden we turn around and look at where we have just walked, realising that we are no longer the same person as when we started the journey.
2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
