Halfway

But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him (Luke 15:20; NIV).

O my God, I am utterly ashamed (Ezra 9:6; NLT).

With you there is forgiveness (Psalm 130:4; NIV).

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

*********************************************

You don’t meet us halfway, Lord, 
Almighty though you are –

Instead, you run to greet us
Exactly where we are.

And then you hug and kiss us,  
Though we shrink away in shame,

But you are all forgiveness,
And we’re welcomed home again.
