“I’ll get up, go to my father, and say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. I’m no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired hands.’ So he got up and went to his father. But while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion. He ran, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him. The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. I’m no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father told his slaves, ‘Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Then bring the fattened calf and slaughter it, and let’s celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found! ’ So they began to celebrate.”
Luke 15:18-24 HCSB
If your in this situation where you made a mistake or you continue to make the same mistakes; me and you are in the same boat. For me it’s hard for me to turn to God when I sin because I know that God is a holy God. More times than I want to admit that I forget that he is a father as well. A father that wants me to run towards him in the mist of trouble or when I scrape my knee from falling. God love goes above and beyond my understanding. And yet I don’t run to it. Instead I believe the lies that hinder me from bonding with my father. God is running towards us with open arms to lift the burdens that are to heavy, to shed light in places that grew dark, and help us understand that there’s no mountain high enough or no river wide enough to separate His love from us.
