This opens up a whole can of worms. There are tons of things I wish I could change and on various levels too. I feel that are so many things that I want changed that has nothing to do with myself: world hunger, human trafficking and crime in general. Those things are something that I know I can be a part of to make that change happen, but on my own nothing will change.
However, there are things that I can change with just little ol' me. For instance, the relationship I have with my father. We have had a very rocky relationship when I was growing up, in fact rocky relationship would be an understatement. We pretty much had a non existent relationship and I hated him for many years. Now, the relationship is totally different. I have found the Lord who took my hurt and anguish away and had replaced it with grace and forgiveness. Now, my father and I have a pretty good relationship. He even walked me down the aisle at my wedding. Something I never thought would happen in a million years.
I wish I could change how I felt about him earlier, I wish we had more of a relationship growing up. I wish that I could have found forgiveness sooner. I wish that the relationship we have now could be even stronger. This I know I can change, it all depends on me and how much I pursue our relationship. I can call him more, I can send more letters and pictures, I can save up money to go visit him. I can show more interest in his daily life and the people he shares it with. In fact, I will go call him right now.
