We are so slow to comprehend the great love that God has for us. We are so slow to take on board His abounding grace and mercy. We struggle to realise that He stands and waits for us to turn to Him and when we do He runs, yes runs, to meet us. We’re not talking of a finger wagging, condemning, judgemental figure here who just longs for us to make a mistake so that He can punish us, we are talking about the reality of a God who gave up everything and suffered so much so that we could come back to Him with no questions asked. We are talking about a God who longs to forgive, restore and welcome us home with loving arms. All we need to do is turn to him, whether for the first time or as part of our daily walk with Him.
