Return to glory....
oh, how wonderful it would be to say that I never left. Unfortunately though, I don't always obey. For whatever reason, there are times that I bring shame to my Father. There I am, like the lepers, standing afar, hiding myself, yet shouting, "Unclean!" What an awful feeling!
The grace of God can restore me. Through my faith in Jesus Christ, I can be made whole.
I have already received the ultimate gift of grace, salvation. I know whom I believe. I know whom I serve. I know where I'll spend eternity.
The human part of me is like a slip and slide. As I try to make my way toward the goal, to be the Christain woman God has planned, I slip and slide along the way. Sometimes my steps are steady and strong. Other times, I can't get my bearings and I fall. Luckily, I don't have to try to get up on my own. Like the lepers, I can lift up my voice and cry, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on me!" And He will. How cool is that?
