I was cleaning the house with much enthusiasm and once the job was finished, I was looking forward to sitting down with a cuppa and reading the paper. In my haste to have a tidy house, I realised that the newspaper had been inadvertently thrown out. I approached the communal bin room just in time to see the recycling truck pulling away ☹. Maybe it was just as well, after all I am sure retrieving anything from the bin is not a great idea.
Fortunately for us, God does not feel the same way. If any of us need rescuing, regardless of what type of strife we are in, he is happy to pull us out, cleanse us and give us another go. He is there, ready, willing, and able to restore us.
Heavenly Father, Lord we know that your love for us enables you to rescue us from any situation; we are never too far gone to be gathered back into your arms and we thank you for that. Amen
