Something must have happened to me. I don’t know the “what” but I can see the consequences. Today, I had more patience. I laughed more. I felt more like me than I have in a while. I see possibilities rather than just the hurdles.
There are some people around whom I don’t recognize myself. And then there are the people around whom I remember who I am. This weekend I was around people who reminded me of who I am. Because they know who I am. It was I who lost sight of that.
Today I told someone, with all due sincerity, that I am going to preach the gospel all over the world. I know that it’s true. I know that God has a lot of work to do in my heart, in my spirit, in my life for that to happen. Obviously healing has to take place. I have to forgive myself of so much. But, God is bigger than my inadequacies. If God was able to transform Saul into Paul, Christian killer into author of 2/3 of the NT, then God can certainly do the work in me that He needs to.
I have a new favorite artist. Sara Groves. I was introduced to her a few months ago when I was going through some stuff. I just listened to the song that was recommended yesterday, entitled “This Journey is my own.” Good stuff. Check it out. I wanted to put it here, but I couldn’t find it. So I give you another song, which I dedicate to my future friends all over the world. Enjoy.
