Turtle Tuesdays: A New Thing

Have you ever felt bored with things that once excited you? Tired of the same ole' thing...B is there NOW!

Meet B, the 'in a rut' turtle. B confessed on the B log a few weeks ago she lost her groove thing. She tried to shake it but her old groove is not working anymore. B has been pondering and praying about this for most of the summer. Now she wonders if this is part of a Master plan to move a turtle like B to a new place. A new thing. Sometimes you have to throw off some things, even good things to go to the place you have been called.

Mayb the Lord wanted to let B's groove thing start feeling like a rut.

Whatever the Lord is doing, it's working. B is shifting her position. She is throwing off some old stuff. There is 'Something New' coming. God stirred her heart Sunday in a big way! B told someone this yesterday and they got the shivers! God Bumps! In fact, B shared this today because she thinks she is not traveling alone in her rut. Mayb you have been walking in the same pattern as B. Nobody else may see your ruts, but you know inside you have settled for less when you have been called to MORE. I know I keep saying MORE. Those are the words I keep hearing. MORE, MORE, MORE!
B's prayer:
Lord, please don't let us settle in comfortable places, travel familiar roads. We have not been called to run in a 'rut race.' You are moving in an incredible way all around us. Help us not get stuck in our successes or our failures. We want to b stuck on you and you alone. Let us hear your words to us today.

Isa 43:19 Be alert, be present. I'm about to do something brand-new.It's bursting out! Don't you see it?There it is! I'm making a road through the desert,rivers in the badlands. (from THE MESSAGE)

B His Girl


  1. B--I love Isaiah 43:19. Especiallly the "Don't you see it?" part. It is right in front of our noses--God's hope and direction--but we are bogged down in rut and routine. Have a great day!

  2. Oh I loved this:

    "She is throwing off some old stuff. There is "Something New" coming."

    I just pray I'm ready for it because right now it seems like God has a long way to go with me first.

    Choosing JOY, Stephanie

  3. I love it! I just read this very verse this morning in the KJV and felt like the Lord was talking to ME! Now I KNOW He was. You were the confirmation that I needed.

    Thanks so much!

  4. Wow - loved it B! Can't wait to hear about the new paths.

  5. I keep hearing in my spirit

    Glory B

    Glory BE

    Glory BEE

    Not sure which one it is. But it's definitely GLORY B.

    You are on the right path. In my journaling time, I hear lots about NEW...

    It must b time.

  6. B you may be in a rut but I thought about you when I was on top of that mountain. I was in a tiny general store right on the edge of a gorge and I saw the cutest turtle bank. It made me smile and I thought about all the B turtles that you have shown us. I thought about getting it for you but my wife already thinks I am a crazy blogger. :)

    I have been in a rut too but I am climbing out now.

  7. Those words you keep hearing, that is my name, Moore. :) Isaiah 43:19 always speaks to me whenever I read it.

    I know He's doing a new thing with you B. I'm looking forward to hearing about it. Saying a prayer for you now.

    Much love my friend!

  8. You are really speaking to me today, B! I'm throwing off some old stuff too. :)

    It's a good thing to shed old skin once in a while, no?

  9. Holy turtle...what a great blog!

  10. What a grea blog you have.....love it....What a great post....so glad that I stopped tonight. This summer has been so crazy that I have not visited some of my favorite blogs often. I always enjoy stopping by yours. Have a Happy Sunday! I have a giveaway going through Monday morning.

  11. It's coming! It's coming! It's coming...the new thing! You are in a beautiful place my Sister in the LORD.

    I have found that when I reach those points GOD is about to shift me. I recently went through that. He has us all on a beautiful journey.

    I'm praying for you dear sister.

    I loved this: "Now she wonders if this is part of a Master plan to move a turtle like B to a new place. A new thing. Sometimes you have to throw off some things, even good things to go to the place you have been called."

  12. Hi B. I pray that all is well with you. I missed you and Turtle Tuesdays. I enjoyed your message and can't wait to go back to read all the posts I missed.

    B blessed!

  13. I am flat out blessed every time I come by B. I just posted about the LORD taking me out of a comfortable place. I want the some much more of God!

    Isaiah 43:19 from the message is awesome - don't think I've heard that verse from the message.

    Blessings to you B!

  14. How I've missed B the turtle!!! Seems like tha new thang is contagious, B! I am crying out for MORE too.

    love you, girl!
