"For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to celebrate." ESV
For some reason, we seem to expect blessings in life when we don't give God the Creator the time of day. Surprisingly, He gives us what we ask for, without realizing where it will take us and how He will work things out for us. When we find ourselves in the most hopeless of conditions, lost and afraid, we turn toward Him. We hope by chance He will give us the opportunity to be even the lowest of His servants. The truth is, when He sees us coming, He runs to us, puts His arms around us, and says, "Welcome home, my child." How unworthy we are to be called His children! How great and awesome is His love for us!
Heavenly Father, we bow before You knowing we are totally unworthy to even be in Your presence. We ask You to forgive us for our selfishness and godless ways. We can never repay Your mercy and grace that takes us into Your arms and speaks to our hearts that You love us always. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
