I love the words from the woman from Tekoa. She said, ‘God does not just sweep life away; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him.” This is the Good News! No matter how far we get from God, he is always looking for and planning ways for us to return to him. There is great comfort in knowing that God will never give up on us. It is re-communicated in the stories of the lost son, the lost coin and the lost sheep. We are invited again and again to come home. I love this verse!
