Return to God August 25, 2012

Posted by daniel ayad in prayer.

Hi everyone. It has been a while since my last post but here is something short.

–          Do you ever have the feeling that you are a failure?

–          Or ever have the feeling that you have made too many mistakes to deserve forgiveness?

Well, join the club that says yes to the above.

We could go on and on, describing how many times we have fallen and chosen to separate from God by sinning. We have made too many mistakes to remember, and if you were to focus on the mistakes it will make you really feel like a loser.

But by the grace of God, Christ died on the cross for our forgiveness to live eternally in Him. We have the comfort knowing that when we return to God, we feel that He is present with us[1]. God was never away from us, but it is we who have left Him. It is sort of like us thinking that the Sun is leaving us in the evening, but it is rather us (the Earth) turning its back on the Sun.

We do not want to follow what is false. Sin blinds, binds and grinds!

Help us to return to You, O Lord, in order to receive forgiveness of our many sins…. and the relationships with mankind will follow.

In Christ, Daniel
