Sometimes I go back through my blog archives and reread what I have already written. The words pour over me. They speak to me, take me back to where I was when I first wrote them……….Maybe you, like me, need to be reminded today, that Jesus makes all things new, and that no matter where you are at in life…..you are never farther than His reach.
“Every saint has a past and every sinner a future.” –Sixteenth century poet
