Down Days

Have you ever had a day when you feel you’ve let God down? You pray, but what comes to mind is a god who is being slightly aloof. My Holy Spirit gave you that nudge but you ignored it. You knew exactly what you should have done. Now you want to be back in my good graces. Good luck with that! If that’s what comes to mind, that’s a totally wrong picture of who God is. We have a Savior who knows personally how weak we are. Just as a good parent picks up and comforts a child who falls down and skins a knee, our loving Savior holds out his arms to us. When we fail, he is right there to pick us up, hold us and comfort us. Like the prodigal son we are forgiven before we ask. We are precious in his sight. Thank you, our loving, gracious God!
