It was a pretty day and I just wanted to spend some time alone. I drove around for a while and it was so nice because there was such a peace and calm in my inner being or soul. It has not always been that way in my life. Years there was a lot of unrest, frustration and no inner peace or real joy and wondering about God. I really hoped that when I stood before Him that my good deeds were a little more than the wrong or bad deeds. That all changed years ago when one night one man explained about Jesus Christ and the importance of His death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave. I understood that He died for my wrongdoings and took my punishment, (Romans 5:8-11, Acts 10:39). But I needed to ask Him to forgive me and put my faith or trust in Him to put me in good standing with God, (John 3:36, John 5:24 ). I knew I had a lot of wrong things in my life especially in my teenage years and later on in college. It was not easy but I asked Him for forgiveness and asked Him to be my Lord, (1 John 1:7-10, Romans 6:16). Wow what a change, what a joy and the beginning of a new life, (1 Thessalonians 5:9, Romans 6:22 & 23). Easter has a special meaning for me. See you in Church next Sunday.
