Return To The Lord

I once feared the Lord’s return. I had too many burdens and my sins were too great. Each time I thought of the Lord’s coming my heart sank. I didn’t think I could ever be forgiven. I didn’t think I could ever live up to His standards. Satan had a hold of my life and I didn’t know how to escape. I had fallen too many times. I felt like this for many years until I gave my heart to Jesus. He extended His arms toward me and wiped away my tears. He came and rescued me from a life of shame. He heard me pleading for forgiveness and had mercy. His love came into my heart and took away my guilt. He broke my chains and set me free. I have finally returned to the Lord.

I am a new person in Christ, Jesus. He listens to my prayers and puts me at peace. My heart has been changed. I can do all things because He is with me. I rejoice in the Lord for I have been set free. I am truly happy for I have been redeemed. I long for the Lord’s return each day. I will live my life for Him. I thank You Lord for sacrificing your life for me. It’s through your blood that my sins have been washed clean. When I think of your love for me I break down in tears. I’ll never understand your compassion for me. Thank You for leading me home. My life is fulfilled because of your grace. When the heavens open I will greet You as my King and Lord. I will wait for You all the days of my life.

Joel 2:10-13
10 The earth quakes before them, The heavens tremble; The sun and moon grow dark, And the stars diminish their brightness.
11 The Lord gives voice before His army, For His camp is very great; For strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; Who can endure it? A Call to Repentance
12 “Now, therefore,” says the Lord, “Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”
13 So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm.
