This is the reality of who we are at Lubbock Impact. Life is messy and relationships aren’t always easy. However, this reminds me of the son who wanted his inheritance and left the family in the Bible. After a time away and hard living, he returned to his family, broken. His father had compassion on him, welcomed him home, and prepared a feast.
Both stories draw us closer to understanding the way God receives us and loves us through our brokenness. I need that acceptance and peace of knowing I can return. My pride may hinder me, but God welcomes me back time and time again.
As we celebrate Jesus’s birth over the next several weeks may you rest in knowing that Jesus made a way for you to be welcomed home. His birth opens the door for you to experience forgiveness and assurance that you are welcome into the kingdom of God.
This year, there have been many days at Lubbock Impact when we have been able to remind fellow broken people that they are welcomed into this place.
I will never stop thanking God for your partnership to serve, give, and pray for all those touched by the ministry of Lubbock Impact.
