Have you noticed this week has been about the R's...Rest, Respect, now Return. NO I am wasn't doing it on purpose. God just works that way!
Return to God. He doesn't ask why you have been away or where you have been? He does sometimes give us the "Gibbs" bump on the head and say "What took you so LONG?" My general answer and usually my answer everytime - I am stubborn...
Do you seriously know anyone who is gracious enough not to bring up your past? Compassionate enough to give you time and space even though He knows your life depends on Him? Slow to anger - no matter what "ugly" thing is said about Him or his children. Doesn't seek revenge..Abounding in Love...
Who do you know can do that 24/7/365? You might have one friend who doesn't show you their anger but behind closed doors they plot their revenge upon EVERYONE no matter the action that hurt them.
"If there be anything I do, if there be anything I leave undone, let me be perfect in prayer. After all, whatever God may appoint, prayer is the great thing. Oh that I may be a man of prayer!" - H. Martyn
My prayer is that today you return to God with all your heart.
Much love to you all!
