The definition of the word repurpose is: adapt for use in a different purpose. I’ve seen some very clever adaptations.
Crutches made into a bookcase.
Even in my home I have an example of repurposing. The mirror decorating our front hallway was originally a headboard.
That brings us down to me. I feel like that bathtub…cut in half. For 35 years I was part of a twosome. We had dreams and goals for us. We operated as a team. We had a future together.
I am learning to adapt for use in a different purpose. And it is difficult. Exactly where does God want to use me now?
I’m branching out. Taking trips. But the day I was baptized in the Jordan River…the Jordan River in Israel…I felt such a deep ache. My beloved was not there to celebrate with me.
I’m not rushing this. I believe my process in discovering my new purpose is a very worthwhile endeavor and deserves deep consideration. But slowly my new purpose will become clear.
Perhaps you, too, are in need of repurposing. Take your time. Be true to God and you. In due time, we will comprehend God’s new plan for us.
“So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of His call. May He give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.” 2 Thessalonians 1:11 (NLT)
