One Step Back

O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help. 
~Psalm 86:5

Our God is a very loving and patient God.  If you need reassuring of this fact, you just need to look at most of the Old Testament.  God put up with a lot from the Jewish people, but in the end he remembered his covenant with Moses and delivered them into their own land.

Just a few weeks ago, our Pastor gave an INCREDIBLE message about the 12 Steps of a Christian Backslider.  I  am not too excited to tell you that I have had been through every step!  But, there was a way to deal with that.  And, it only required ONE step!!!  We must realize what we have done and ask the Lord to forgive us.  Seriously, just one step!!!  That's how much God loves us all and wants to have a strong relationship with us.

Father, it is amazing to me how much You love us and long to show us that love.  I have taken that one step back and rely on You and Your word to continually show me how to live. Father, I love you and the things you have done for me and will do for me.  Amen
