~Where do I go, Where do I turn?~

There are many times in our lives when we ask ourselves.."where can I go?" "What do I do?" Or even.."Who will accept me?" Whatever your question may be..God is the one who will give your mind peace! When you've sinned and you have failed someone dear to you..Jesus still loves you and welcomes you home, just as the story of the prodigal son when his Father welcomed him with open arms! Jesus welcomes us back even when we have really messed up and we feel like we don't deserve forgiveness or another chance! I want you to know that he loves you and he will forgive you because he is a God of mercy, grace and compassion! As you read this story I hope that you'll realize just how much he really loves you and how far his love reaches!
Luke 15:11-24
"11 And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. 13 Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 14 And when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. 16 And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything. 17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father's hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’ 20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 23 And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate."
