The last year and a half has moved me deeper spiritually in a number of ways. I will mention two of them.
The first is that I want to live each day -- trusting in the Lord for that day. Too much of my life has been lived with worried eyes toward the future. I now rebuke that kind of life.
The second is that I want to live a "no regret" life. I want there to be no loose ends in any of my relationships. If I need to forgive someone, I want to do that. If I have wronged someone, I want to make it right. No regrets. It is amazing how the result of that is peace.
Those are my two big words right now: Hope and peace. My ONLY hope is in Jesus. And HE is my peace.
