Jeremiah 3:22 “My wayward children,” says the Lord, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts." “Yes, we’re coming,” the people reply, “for you are the Lord our God.
We can never get so far from God that he can't reach us when we call out. The Children of Israel strayed from God over and over and over again. God always loved them!! God took them back.... God said to them and he says to us "come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts." We all mess up...even when we are trying to do our very best and especially when we are not trying at all. God loves us still... all we have to do is confess our sins, tell God that we are sorry...and God says right here in his word that he will "heal our wayward hearts!" I love this! God loves us so much... I love that I can say to God "I want to have great faith, I want to do what you ask of me... but, God sometimes I have such a hard time... I need your help!" and God helps me, he helps me every single time.
It is so important for us to know that we can always call out to God, always! God loves us so much and is there, ever present, for us! Always! So often we attribute human qualities to God. So often people don't forgive and we feel like God can never forgive us. Think of the person you love most in the world...how often have you forgiven that person, even when you thought that you couldn't. God forgives more than we can even think to forgive, God loves more than we can imagine loving. God can heal more than we can fathom. God says "My wayward children, come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts." Our part is to always, always come back to God...our biggest mess up in so much smaller than God's great love.
