God Writes Himself Back In

A brief paragraph I wrote some while back…

When we do wickedly and go astray from our Lord, He does not write us off.  Nor does He merely bring us back to Himself in one fell swoop, as against our will, or as with no appreciation for the meaningfulness of our decided path away from Him.  Instead, He sets about the work of using the very path of our wandering, the very stuff of our rebellion, to bring us back to Himself.  Ever the patient Artisan, YHWH God works with the mess that we’ve made of our own story and writes Himself back in.
