“Every day is day One and new beginnings can happen anywhere down the road.” ~ One Thousand Gifts
No matter how far I drifted away from God on my journey, His arms were there welcoming me back. Growing up (and to this day) I loved to hear the Bible story of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32), how he left his life to follow his pleasures and “do his own thing,” all of which eventually led him to ruin before he realized his drifting had separated him from his father. He returned home, to the welcoming arms of his father finding compassion and redemption. “this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”
I may not have faced the ruin of the prodigal son in my life, but my heart has drifted from the things of God; following my own agenda and doing “my own thing.” There have been so many times in my life I’ve not been hot or cold, I’ve been luke-warm to cool. His Grace welcomes me HOME!
One thing I am learning on this journey, this road God gives me, is I have to choose each day to intentionally pursue Him. And every day He gives me new beginnings!
