Glory Hallelujah! 1000 gifts

This past week so much time was spent out of our home, or occupied by online training that kept me from some of the normal rhythm of home.

Home, that word brings so much joy and peace to my heart.  It wasn't always so, but God has healed so much, forgiven much, changed much in my life.  He has given me a new heart, that seems to beat more strongly day by day.

It is amazing to think, nearly 9 years ago I was in physical heart failure...and even more so, spiritual heart failure.  While the surgeon replaced a valve and stitched me back together, the LORD's scalpel went even deeper.

Looking back at my life used to bring shame, fear, pain.  Now most days a reminder of the days behind stir a wonder and joy within me.

There is therefore now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  The old has passed away, the new has come.

Glory Hallelujah!
