“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate." Luke 15:17-24

There's something about this story that mirrors my walk with Christ. I’ve asked my Father to give me all things that appeal to my eyes and my plans. Instead, He blessed me with what He knew I needed, and because the scales shielded my sight, I resentfully walked away to fulfill my own desires. I strayed from His words and His path because I was attracted to things in the world. When it all dried up, when there was nowhere else to turn, I went back to Him and laid everything at His feet. He didn’t resent nor condemn me for leaving. He opened His arms, called me by name and threw a feast for my return. This is also your story.

Dear Prodigal Daughter,

 

Your Father awaits your return with wide open arms. I know it may feel as though you're alone in this path, but you're not. There are so many like you, and The Lord loves you just the same and He simply wants you to know He is waiting for you. Join us for three days of rest, worship and prayer with others who are and have walked this very path. You are not alone. 

 

Love,

The Found Sheep
