Hey, guess what?

I did something that I had been putting off for far too long.........

I mended a relationship.

I made the first move, contacted this person and made.things.right.

The few hours before we were to get together; I kept praying: "not in my strength, Lord, not in my strength". I wasn't nervous - actually I was anxious. Anxious to fix this, to lay it all out.....

Praise God.

He makes all things new. Doesn't mean things might ever be the same again, in fact this person and I agreed to disagree. And thats okay.

You know what I feel now?

Huge weight lifted off the 'ol shoulders.
Can I just encourage you all - don't put it off ANY LONGER.
You know.
You know what needs to be fixed.
Make the first move and be the one to come forward.
Doesn't mean you have to see eye to eye.....
But to clear the feels so AMAZING!!
God is so good.
So good.
And to that special person; hugs to you.
You know who you are.
