Have you ever wondered, where did it all go wrong? Or, how did they end up like this? I have. You look at someone’s life and you can’t quite figure out how they got where they are today.
I heard it said the other day, “I made a wrong turn on the way to church!” That kind of says it all. Somehow the individual took their eyes off of Jesus and looked instead at what was around them. Kind of like Peter when he was walking on the water. He let his circumstances disrupt his fixed gaze on the Master, on Jesus.
“Church” doesn’t save you, or even just “going to church” doesn’t either! I know a couple of women who “go to church” every time the doors are open, but there is no love of God in their hearts! As a result, people get hurt.
Back to the people who have strayed from the truth; they started looking at what Satan was offering them “now” that would fulfill that longing desire in their heart instead of waiting on God to provide something or someone pure, holy, and a part of Him.
The wonderful truth is this; it’s never too late to backtrack and take the right street to the church. In other words, it’s never too late to return to God. Most likely there is someone who is praying you would and God is sitting on the front porch staring down the road as far as He can hoping to see you come over the horizon toward him! He is waiting with open arms.
Let’s take a good look at the way we’re living
and reorder our lives under God. Lam. 3:40 (MSG)

Sure wish I had done this in 1999 when I made that wrong turn. I’ve regretted it ever since.
Laura, I think everyone could say something similar. I sure know I could. Thanks for reading this blog, and thank you for your honesty. “God, help Laura accept your grace and your forgiveness. Minister to her regret, Father. Thank you.”
I guess I’m that person praying. There are people I so wish would wake up and come home to Gather God. 😥
