Grateful for saw me in the distance!
So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.
Luke 15:20 NLT
God is always waiting for our return! God never loses hope we get back! He is always watching the horizon, waiting to see us back even when we do not see him. And in his eyes we don’t find condemnation, neither seeing us his eyes tell us reproachfully: “I told you” or “If you had listened to me, you would not have fallen so low.” Many times in the distance, it is difficult for us to read in the eyes of the Lord the love and compassion as he sees us; waiting for us with his arms open, not to scold our disastrous past, but for clean our dirt, our sin and rejoice because we return to life. —Thank you Lord because you saw me from far away!
