At one time...


My view from the kitchen door.
The older I get...and the closer I get to God...the more I begin to see things so very differently than I once did.

At one time...I was liberal. I'm not anymore.

At one time...I smoked cigarettes. But because of a TRUE miracle of God, I don't anymore.

At one time...I drank alcohol. Quite a bit of it. But because I'm not good at it...or maybe I was TOO good at it...I don't drink anymore.

At one time...I was at the mercy of depression. Because of God's faithfulness...and His Word and promises...and MY determination to BELIEVE it all, I'm not anymore.

At one time...I was at the mercy of anxiety. I'm not anymore.

At one time...I sang Jesus songs not really knowing what I was singing about. Now I sing Jesus songs and I know WHO I am singing about, personally.

At one time...I was lost. So very lost. But now...I am found.

God changes things...and it is always for the better. Always.

So I came out to meet you; I looked for you and have found you!
Proverbs 7:15

This post just makes me want to jump up and cheer for our God. Instead I type these words with tears in my eyes. Our God is so good and when you know Him, you can't help but change. And I'm so glad you experienced change- you are an amazing creation, sweet friend!
