I love the word repurposed. It conjures thoughts of time and effort, intention and drive, commitment and patience. It’s full of hope, I think, that what’s neglected, ugly, and tired can find meaning again. Find purpose.
“Watch closely,” the Maker promises, “I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; waters will flow where there has been none.” Isaiah 43:19
I believe God’s making a way through the darkest of nights, the parched deserts, the veiled secrets. Can we dare cling to the promise that He’s preparing something new? Yes, I know we can.
So, the challenge: While exploring this blog, reflect on your own narrative, too. How is God repurposing your story? Where is your tension? Your redemption? As you navigate your own circumstances, I encourage you to eventually let your words spill onto others. Maybe the very story you’ve been scorning, or just ignoring, will repurpose and restore another’s life.
Together, let’s reflect and then join God in redeeming what’s broken in our own communities. Let’s live Gospel-infused lives.
