God: arms are outstretched….
Luke 15:18-24 (KJV) “I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.”
We mess up so many times in this life and sometimes the father we have on earth, just don’t want to hear it; yet when our heavenly Father finds us, His arms are always outstretched and ready to receive us even when we slip up.
It might appear that the damage is so without remedy, yet God in all His glory, is capable of looking beyond the things we do and forgive us and accept our humility in repenting.
What a loving God and Father He is to us. Arms open wide to receive us. Glory to God.
