The key to restoration is repentance. Spiritual revival is possible only if we return to God with a contrite heart. God is faithful to forgive and His free grace is something that we can avail 24/7. All we need is to leave our past sins, failures and hurts behind; come back to his lordship; and hold on to His promise that when he restores, it’ll be better than before.
As for me, it’s not always sunshine and smiles and rainbows everyday, yet I still love the life He has given me. Thank you God for being You.
“Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart
with fasting and weeping and mourning.”
Rend your heart and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.
