Making the old, new!












Happy Hump Day!

The week is halfway over! I hope this week has brought you much joy and happiness!

This post is dear to me for a couple reasons. 

First, the trench coat is actually a coat passed down from my grandmother when we was my age! So this coat is from the 1960's! I remember when she first gave it to me, I thought to myself "I will never wear this, but its from my grandma so I have to take it." She took care of it and so did I, and now that I am in my 20's, I have found to love it! 

It's amazing how you can make any old thing new again through TLC and pairing it with something new.

For example, I paired the coat with some of my newer clothes and it made the coat look like I got it to go with the outfit! It definitely doesn't look like its 50 years old!

May sounds cheesy, but that's how it is when we become new in Christ. He takes the old us, the worn out us- & makes us new by pouring in His love, His care, His mercy and living in us! 

I was dead in my transgressions and He made me new. He takes care of me and cleanses me when I become dirty. 

"That even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's grace that you have been saved!)"- Ephesians 2:5

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!"- 2 Corinthians 5:17

Just as my grandma and I made this jacket new by cleaning it, restoring it, and mixing it with our own style, Jesus has cleansed you, restored you and made you new through Christ! Hallelujah!

I hope you have a great day.
