Let them turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for He will freely pardon.
(The Lord calls to all of us who have rebelled against Him
and turned away from His ways and graciously invites us
back into relationship with Him.
Only turning away from wickedness and disobedience,
from rebellion and lack of trust, will do no good, though,
unless we turn to the Lord and His salvation.
When we do turn away from the sin and disobedience
that so quickly and easily besets us, we can be assured
that God Who is rich in mercy will eagerly and tenderly embrace us
and enfold us into His redemption and salvation
from whatever situation, whatever problem, from whatever fear,
from whatever attitude, that separates us from Him.
When we turn to the Lord, His response is always His everlasting mercy
accompanied by His freely-given forgiveness
and pardon from sin and wrong thinking and wrong doing.
He doesn’t hold back His forgiveness for failures, mistakes, wrong choices, or faults,
but eagerly covers us with His redemption and salvation!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
