2008-05-30 - How to Embrace a Heavenly FatherAt one point in our lives, whether it has been years, months, or weeks, we had to brush up on our decision-making skills and decide if there was room in our lives for God. If you've never chosen God as your Heavenly father, no matter the circumstances, no matter why you need an extra parent in your corner, choosing God as a Heavenly father is always an option. He's there for us. God doesn't want us because He's bored or for vanity's sake. He doesn't have a cap on how many kids He'll take under His wing. The Lord is ready to accept us. (Psalm 27:10)
It's up to you. You are the one in the driver seat, with the control. He's got all this acceptance, love, and time to shower upon us, waiting in mid-air for us to decide if we're willing to take a chance, to put ourselves in yet another vulnerable position and have a relationship with Him.

Why Would God Want Me?
Rewards from a Heavenly God
Lord, I admit I have blamed You for a lot of things. I never believed You could love someone like me. I'm ready to take that step and believe. Please forgive me for the wrong choices and mistakes I've made. I want to make things right, and so I turn my life over to You. Show me what it means and takes to be Your child. Bring people into my life that can help me, instead of tearing me down. May I accept and receive all the love and blessings Your son Jesus died for me to obtain. I pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
