The start of the new year is the perfect time to take stock in our relationship with God. Is it where it should be, a close, loving, personal relationship with the Lord? Or has it been on the back burner stunted by wrong things in our lives? Israel turned away from God, with devastating consequences. Yet when they sought to return to Him, God welcomed them back with open arms. And He longs to do the same with us. There is no more important relationship we have than the one we have with God. And when we turn to Him in love and repentance, He is faithful to to restore us back to Himself.
