Restoration is what we have been talking about most recently at CCC. It is what God desires for each of us, and for all of us.
What would you like restored? Start your list. Better yet, ask God what he would like to restore in your life.
When I do that, one of the first things that comes to mind is LOVE. God wants to restore to me the first love I had for him, when he entered the mess I called my life, and cleaned me up, stood me upright, and set me free. That passionate love is what I want restored more than anything else! And he wants, and deserves it, too.
In the middle of this month we will celebrate Valentines Day. It's all about love. Like you, I will be thinking about how I can tell my own dear love how much she means to me. Maybe we ought also to consider how we can show our own dear Father how much we love him, too.
Let him restore your first love!
See you soon...
