I wasn’t sure
You would want to see me
But I have nowhere else to go
So, I’m taking a chance
I messed up
But You said You would love me always.
So, I’m coming to see
If You are willing
As I make this turn
To come home
What will I find?
Will I find mercy
Oh my. I can hardly believe
What I’m seeing
You’re running towards me
With arms stretched out
I can’t see much through my tears
I can hardly breathe in Your embrace
You are covering me with grace
You are drawing me towards Your place
You have me in Your hands
You are kissing me and singing that I’m home
You have placed Your ring on my finger
You call me Your own
I feel welcomed and loved
Because You came looking for me
I’m never leaving
Joel 2:12-14 (NIRV)
The Lord announces to his people,
“Return to me with all your heart.
There is still time.
Do not eat any food.
Weep and mourn.”
Don’t just tear your clothes to show how sad you are.
Let your hearts be broken.
Return to the Lordyour God.
He is gracious.
He is tender and kind. He is slow to get angry.
He is full of love.
He won’t bring his judgment. He won’t destroy you.
Who knows? He might turn toward you and not bring his judgment.
He might even give you his blessing.
Then you can bring grain offerings and drink offerings to the Lord your God.
