Coming back home

Share
The Lord says: "These people say they love me; they show honour to me with WORDS, but their HEARTS are far from me. The honour they show me is nothing but human rules. Isaiah 29:13 (New Century Version) Capitals mine

Forgive me Lord
for i have strayed
With my mouth
I have sang your praise
But my heart
Has been far from you
I have been so busy
chasing deadlines,
meetings,
people
forgetting that
I'm supposed to be
chasing
You,
Lover of my life,
Lover of my soul,
My Husband
My Father
My Friend
the One who delights in Me
So I've come back home to you
Your love has drawn me back
I find You so irresistible
It's difficult...no impossible
to live without You
I've tasted and seen
that You are good
Truly your mercy endureth forever
Thank you for loving me
THAT much

The Christian race is not an easy one, yes even Believer does stray but never beyond the reach of His grace and love. It's not only when we commit a 'BIG' sin like lying, stealing or gossip that we need His forgiveness. Sometimes it's just for not keeping Him first. His first commandment says we must have no other gods before Him (Exodus 20:3). Sometimes our 'gods' are good things but I have learnt that they are a poor substitute for abiding with the Father. It is well. I'm learning more about Him and His wonderful love with each passing day. Just remember that for you as well, His love is deep enough to catch you at whatever point you may be.

Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2008 continues to be our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

I was asking myself a few hours ago. Rinsola, who has brought you and blessed you thus far irrespective of your mess? So why don't you always find your way back to Him immediately you realize you'r straying away? Enouraged again by this post. Thanks for sharing and amen to the prayers. Howz ur week coming?

'Big' sin like lying, stealing or gossip.

**Heavy Sigh**

I need to ask for forgiveness. I have been so comfortable it actually shocked me seeing Lying and gossip in the category of big sin...

I have categorized sin but it is what it is...

No big or little sin...

It all leads to death... both spiritually and physically...

Lord save me
