From the inside out

I have had a really good day. Probably because it was my sabbath. I did get a decent amount of work done. Not like work work, just fun work like baking and grocery shopping and blog writing. I am feeling so much at home these days. The real surprising thing is I am enjoying it. I like being at home. I never wanted to feel at home. I always thought it meant I was trapped. Now I am just home and I love it.

The inside of my apartment has been decorated. It looks very homey compared to what it used to. It could still use some curtains though. But hey, I have had a bed now for over a year. I have all my earthly possessions in it; and I have a nice, comfortable chair to sit in. How is that not a home?

I am so excited for tomorrow. It is good to have people. I just watched an episode of Cheers. It is good to go where everybody knows my name; or well, 5% of the people. :)

It occurred to me in the last few days to not ever let anyone define me. I do not know who I am becoming, why would I let anyone I know define my future with my past? So much has changed in the last ten years. I have been made new 100 times over. I am going to keep letting Jesus make me new. I am going to quit thinking I know where His destination is. Because where I am right now is way better than what I would have imagined! I am so grateful He changes the inside of me. I did not know I could be this whole on the inside. Or this joyful. Making amends really does make a person joyful.

Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. – John 16:24
