Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
The silly-looking little clown wobbled back and forth across the tabletop. He would jerk along in a funny walk, then, as his foot cleared the edge of the table, he would rock back, spin, and head off in a new direction, barely averting disaster.
We are a lot like that clown. We head off in wrong directions and then have to change our ways time and time again in order to avoid bad consequences. The word [repent] means to turn away from or toward. God wants us to turn from the things that are wrong in our lives and to turn toward Him. If we will always try to do just that, the Lord's face will shine upon us, and we shall be saved.
Prayer: Be patient with me, Lord, I run off in so many wrong directions, but I want always to come back to You. Thank You for not giving up on me. Amen.
