Tears spill over my blue eyes and onto the morning pages. Another parent has a heart broken by His child. Abandoned love. Simmering anger and hostility. Division between the loved and the Be-loved.
Lord, I am praying for prodigals today. Give redirection for children who have wandered away from your heart. You have rescued me from selfish ambitions. May the prodigal generation seek Jesus during trials and achievement. Help them turn away from the temptation of their environment. There is no shame in loving You and living a Christian life. May every prodigal seek Jesus and return to You. Amen.
If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. Matthew 18:12-13 NIV
LIVING FOR TODAY
Living in redirection, I turn away from the crowd of approval. I set my eyes on the Lord and walk towards Him.
