I’ve known for a long time that anything within time and space couldn’t fill the longing of my heart. But, for 30 years as a Christian, judging from my ACTIONS, I’d never entirely given up hope in time and space. I kept pursuing money, sex, booze, success, physical fitness, etc. as if I wasn’t entirely sure they WOULDN’T fill me up. So, I kept going back to them. I hadn’t ENTIRELY given up hope on them. But, now that I’ve found a way that DOES work to deliver me peace/joy, I feel free to abandon hope in anything within time and space. I’m not saying I’ve “been delivered” from all my addictions. But I could see that happening.
