God is doing something new, so something new is going to be asked of us. -Tom
What is the new wine, the new life, God has for me and my family? How can I embrace the new wine the Lord has for me? What is going to be asked of me in embracing the new things God has for my life? Why would God hide blessings from his children? I don’t want to feel stretched, but I look forward to God’s blessings; can I have one without the other? I’ve been praying for an answer for a long time, how can I trust that the Lord has something new for me?
It’s important that I remember in this process to be grateful for the struggles and what’s in front of us; even when it’s not solved yet or we can’t see it. Thank You Lord that I have to trust in you. -Kari
We didn’t reserve our house until yesterday, But the Lord had held it in reserved for us. It was always there, but we couldn’t see it. The Lord revealed it to us in His time, in His way. -Tom
The Currans reflect on the adventure and joy of being stretched, like new wine in new wineskin! Tom reads and reflects on the Gospel passage from Matthew 9. Kari shares stories about moving, looking for a temporary house, and the 4th of July. To conclude, Tom and Kari reflect on the gift of big families.
17 People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.
