Prodigal

Prodigal

Father God, You spoil us with Your love. You spoil us with the gift of free will and choices. But it’s never enough for us because we think that the world can give us something worth more than the love of our Creator. We want passion, we want to see all that the world has to offer, we want more, we want so many things that we forget You. We forget to be grateful for the ability to live. We let these other things get into our heads but they are empty and they will vanish just as fast as they came. Is it too late? Do you still have a place for us? Is there grace? You have answered us by sending Your only Son Jesus to meet us with arms wide open on that cross so that we could know that the answer is always “Yes.” So don’t let us stop ourselves from coming back to You. Don’t let fear, shame or pride prevent us from taking that step closer to You. We live prodigally by fulfilling our wants, desires and sinful ways but You, Lord, are prodigal in love, mercy and compassion even when we’ve messed so bad. We pray to be prodigal in our humility because You are God, You are good, You are love, You are forgiveness, You are mercy and You are grace. You are all that You say You are and we thank you for never forsaking us.
