Day 6: Welcome Home


Oh why does GOD put up with us?

Why didn't HE give up in the Garden with HIS first two "kids"?

HE gave them everything that HE created and said that "IT IS GOOD".

A PERFECT LIFE,

but not PERFECT enough

because it could be better

because is PERFECT ever enough?

Well, in the GARDEN it was PERFECT ENOUGH

until it could be BETTER

with only one little bite of an apple~

the bite that changed the world.

I wonder if GOD scratched HIS head wondering

"What did I do wrong? I gave them everything. I loved them.

I created them. I can't believe I messed up".

Hmm.

If a PERFECT GOD'S CREATIONS

made a choice outside of GOD'S WILL

is GOD at fault?

Oh how GOD gets the bad wrap

when things don't go exactly as we plan.

Oh how GOD gets the bad wrap

when bad seeps into good.

Oh how GOD gets the bad wrap

when anything goes wrong,

because didn't HE create the

people, places, & things that do wrong?

Oh the PATIENCE of GOD

who is beyond GRACIOUS

as HE gifts all HIS CREATIONS

with

FREE WILL

yet HE doesn't leave us hanging wondering

which direction we should go.

Adam & Eve~

the first PRODIGALS

because of FREE WILL.

But GOD loves the PRODIGAL

because HE loves HIS CREATIONS

so much so

that HE does not anyone to perish.

So HE nipped it in the bud

at the moment of the crime

promising

NEW LIFE

A NEW BEGINNING

A DO~OVER

for all who have taken a bite

or who are taking a bite at this very moment

playing with life as a PRODIGAL.

Because

JESUS

who is always

so GRACIOUS

that HE took the bites of life of all

and wore them on a cross~

"Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them)

and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives GOD wills for us,

GOD did it for us.

Out of sheer generosity HE put us in right standing with HIMSELF.

HE got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where HE always wanted us to be.

And HE did it by means of JESUS CHRIST" (Romans 3:23-24 MSG)

Oh a FREE WILL INVITATION for all the PRODIGALS~

"If you declare with your mouth, 'JESUS is LORD,' and believe in your heart that GOD raised HIM from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9)

Oh Adam & Eve

do you ever wish you never took that one bite, making you

the first PRODIGALS set apart from GOD?

But GOD didn't stop there

and will never stop

as HE calls the PRODIGAL HOME

just waiting to

wrap HIS LOVING arms around everyone who feel so set apart

because

THE GOD WHO MATTERS SAYS YOU MATTER AND THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.

Oh Welcome Home

because

GOD

"STILL CALLS ME SON (DAUGHTER)" (listen to the song below)
