I am so excited to be hosting the Whole Heart Challenge! I hope you are excited too! I decided to hold the challenge this month because it falls during Lent. If you want to join the Whole Heart Challenge, then I invite you to grab a copy of my book, Giving God Your Whole Heart. We will meet up here each Tuesday and Saturday throughout the month to discuss each of the nine chapters in the book.
Today we are discussing chapter 1. One of the things that we touched on in this chapter of the book was the story of the prodigal son, which is found in Luke 15:11-32. I really love this parable because it illustrates just how much our heavenly Father loves us. When we walk on this earth, we will have doubts, pain, regrets, heartache, and difficulties. All of these things tend to consume us as we walk through them. As a result, they take our eyes off of our Father because we are too focused on our worries. And in turn, we might forget just how much the Lord loves us. As time goes on, we might let life get in the way of our relationship with Him. But when we read this story in the Bible, it reminds us of God’s unfailing love. And hopefully it will help draw us closer to Him. Whatever you are facing today, remember that God loves you beyond measure. And He will help you with any battle you might be up against. Just turn towards Him and He will be there.
