Finding Your Way Back 1: Regret & Longing
This Week: Often we can catch ourselves wandering and wondering how we are going to draw closer to our Heavenly Father. Whether you are finding your way back to God for the first time or you are realizing your relationship with God has become distant, you always have a way back home.
Along the way, you will encounter barriers. Barriers of time, guilt, pride, and barriers of daily distractions. Sometimes these things cause us to run away from God. If you can overcome these hurdles though, you will see the Father on the other side running toward you with open arms ready to welcome you home! If you or someone you know is looking for a way back, we encourage you to join us as we study the story of the prodigal.
