Pull a U-ey

“When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Luke 15:17-20 (NIV)

I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.” Jeremiah  24:7 (NIV)

Dear Father,

Thank you for waiting up for us. Thank you for leaving the  porch light on to guide our return! One turn and all is new—

Once lost, now found.

Once darkened, now light.

Once fearful, now faithful.

Once sold, now bought.

Once dirty, now clean.

Once bruised,  now healed. 

Once dead, now alive.

Once an alien, now a child!

Jesus, You are the Turn that altered our eternity! We are Home! 

In Jesus Name Forever
