Have you ever had one of those thoughts in the back of your mind of something that you know you SHOULD do? You know what i mean - one of those things that you think you don't have time for, or your scheduled got discombobulated & you let that certain thing slip & have just never gotten around to getting back into the swing of things.

"Therefore tell the people: 'Return to me' declare the Lord Almighty, "and I will return to you''  (Zechariah 1:3 NIV)

This verse reminds me that God waits patiently for our return to Him. We may not even have gone anywhere, but this is something that we need to do again, & again, & again during our life.  It's not how many times we return to Him, but that we make an effort every time we need to.

 Physically, maybe you need to go back to church on a regular basis to worship & give praise with other members of your Godly Family. 

 Emotionally, maybe you need to remember to "worry not" & become determined to rely on Him through troubles. 

Spiritually, maybe you need to recommit to regular prayer & Bible study.

The last one is the one that really opened my eyes. Since we moved last spring, i had not gotten into my morning devotional & pray time. This is something that i have done for many years & i can only admit that i have been lazy in this. I have no excuses.

God waits for us every day with open arms. He wants us to continue to return to Him. Whatever your return might be, don't wait any longer. And don't ever be afraid that He won't return to you, because He is always there waiting on us.
