It's been a while...

My beautiful friend Krysty Kay just wrote this ingenious post about the sound track for her life. I was kicking myself that I hadn't written it first because I often have the same thought. My problem is that I constantly have music in my head, car, life and I would never be able to single out songs to associate with the different bits and peices of my life. I know this all sounds random but the "It's been a while" made me think of it because of that 90's song by like Creed or one of those gravely voiced grunge bands.

I've been thinking about the name of this blog recently..."Living in the light" and the verse that it originates from in John. There's a similar passage in Psalm 32 that I have been meditating on recently as well.

1Oh, what joy for those whose rebellion is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
2 Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of sin, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
3 When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long.
4 Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat.
5 Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, "I will confess my rebellion to the LORD." And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. (NLT)

So good.

Lord, may I always live my life before you and others this way.
