Zechariah 1:3 Therefore, say to the people, "This is what the Lord of Heaven's Armies says: Return to me, and I will return to you, says, the Lord of Heaven's Armies.
I love how God made it known twice in this scripture that it was it came from him that all we have to do is return to God and he will return to us!...No matter what we have done, no matter how far we have wandered... if we return to God he will return to us!! You might ask where God was when??.... it is important to remember that God does not leave us... we choose to leave God. We have that choice because God gave us free will.... God gives us the choice to love him and to choose him.... God gives us the choice to stay close or wander away... so when you feel that God is not near ask yourself where you have run to, what you have run to.... never forget that you can always return to God he loves us more than our minds have the capacity to comprehend!.... His is a perfect love and even when we choose to wander far away he loves us and is waiting there for us with his arms open wide.... and God's arms is an amazing place to be there you will find love, unconditional love, peace, amazing peace, comfort, strength, self worth, kindness and answers to your questions. I am so blessed that God was waiting for me!
