It seems I have spent the last seven years waiting for the sun to shine again. In the last season I have seen glimpses of blue sky and rays of sunshine peak through the clouds, but now suddenly the storm has finally moved on and I am basking in the warmth of peace. Peace…a foreign feeling.

This peace came with a hefty price tag, surrender and forgiveness. Side-Note: I don’t EVER admit when I am wrong, and lately I’ve had to back track and apologize A LOT, and really look at who I’d become. This peace has been a result having to surrender my dreams and agendas, and learning how to really LOVE people the way Christ loves people. I don’t have it all figured out but these things I have learned and I will try to live out, because I’ve missed the sun way to long…

1. Do not chase leadership, leadership only comes to those who serve. (Luke 22: 25-27)

2. Forgiveness and Surrender is the only way to peace. (Romans 8:6)

3. True Friendship is the GRACE that illuminates life’s darkest paths. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
