Nehemiah 1:9 But if you return to me and obey my commands and live by them, then even if you are exiled to the ends of the earth, I will bring you back to the place I have chosen for my name to be honored."
This is such a wonderful promise from God... He takes us back... if we mess up and God abandons us because we are not living like he ask us to... all we have to do is do the things God wants, call out to him, talk to him daily, do our best to keep his commands... grown in his wisdom...and God will put us right back where we belong... God is saying "OK you messed up! Now do it right... and everything will be okay." We don't need to beat ourselves up... we need to "fess up" and move forward with God... we can never move so far away from God that he won't come and get us when we call out to him and do the things He ask!... that is an awesome promise!!
