Distress that drives us to God does that. It turns us around. It gets us back in the way of salvation. We never regret that kind of pain. But those who let distress drive them away from God are full of regrets, end up on a deathbed of regrets. ~ 2 Corinthians 7:10 (MSG)
When we distance ourselves from the wrongdoing that has shown up in our lives we are back on the road to salvation.PRAYER:
Thank you, Lord God, for working out salvation for us so we can turn and follow you. I confess that I am stuck on some sins in my life -- things which I can't shake. And in saying that, I am acknowledging that I do wrong and that I need help in making things right. I can't do it but I know that you can; and I am going to turn and trust you. I pray in the name of our Savior Christ Jesus. Amen.
