A reminder for today
We had to celebrate this happy day. For your brother was dead and has come back to life! He was lost, but now he is found!' (Luke 15:32)
Life is all about changes and challenges. Sometimes we find joy and sometimes we fail and we find unhappiness. Sometimes our journeys lead us over mountains and sometimes we walk on roads. I have often written to you about journeys and how life is filled with different journeys. What is in a journey? We often wonder away and walk through darkness to find light. Our journeys sometimes lead us into storms, but what do we do when we find the end of our journey?
I have walked way for a while. Some may say you call it soul searching and some would call it running away from destiny. Some would call it lost and some would see it as opportunity. The fact remains that God never leaves us and so I found myself walking beside a stream in my mind. It was a beautiful little stream that winds and crinkles through a lush and evergreen forest. At times it widened and became a river with rocks and rapids and sometimes it will settle into a lake like river where you could see your reflection in the water as you walk on. I kept walking with my head down as if I am in shame for what I have done. The mistakes I have made and the sins of my life. A bright light reflected of the water and forced me to look up. To look up and to find myself out of the forest. The light reminded me of the ever present God and the life He wants us to live.
So today I want to remind you that no one is lost until it is the end. There is always hope and God never gives up. That is why there is a huge celebration when a lost one is found. When someone who has fallen by the pressures of life and now stands up again to walk their journey with the Lord.
Lord, I pray that your Word will break walls today and bring people back to you. In Jesus name.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
