It is easy to take a wrong turn on the road of life. We look up to see detours, construction and dead ends. As easy as it is to get off track, we are only one prayer away from being back on.
We were designed for an exciting adventure of taking risks, leaps of faith and daunting feats of courage. We bear the image of the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, infinite God of the Universe and are made to flourish.
When we lost our connection to God, we lost our way; but God’s relentless love left Heaven for earth to rescue, redeem, restore and reconnect us back to the Father. As we receive Jesus we are reconnected to the King of Heaven and back on mission.
As we rest in the finished work of Christ, we can discover the unforced rhythms of grace. We can be led by the beautiful Spirit of God into our purpose and destiny. As we are led to a table prepared for us where our cup overflows, we will find that mercy and goodness pursue us all of the days of our lives as we dwell in the community of believers forever.
Psalm 23:1-3 (MSG) – God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing. You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from. True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction.
