Wednesday of Week 17 Year 2

We face all sorts of challenges in life: from the time we were born; the time we took our first steps; the time we started kindergarten and then school, then college, then university; the time we started working; perhaps for some, looking for a life partner; for some, getting married; then starting a family; till today. Throughout the many stages of our lives, we have depended on our family and friends to guide us along the way. But how many of us have turned to God for help; perhaps falling away from Him at some point in our lives, and then returning once again to Him?

In today's reading, we are comforted with the fact that we have a loving God who waits patiently for us to turn to Him and depend on Him. The reading tells us: "If you repent, so that I restore you, in my presence you shall stand; ...For I am with you, to deliver and rescue you, says the LORD. I will free you from the hand of the wicked, and rescue you from the grasp of the violent." Throughout our lives, we may have done many right and wrong things. God invites us to repent and return in friendship with Him. He will care for us and protect us, provided that we are willing and humble enough to let Him take control. Are we going to wait or ignore His promptings?
