Home To Stay

Luke 15:11-24

The story of the prodigal son is one of the best illustrations of our Heavenly Father’s love found in the Bible. It has in it themes we are all familiar with. Family, youth, rebellion, realization, repentance, and restoration are all apart of the story. The father’s never ending love, concern, compassion, and desire for his son immediately points us to the Lord. We are foolish to stray from the Father’s side, but when we do, it is a joy to know He is ready to forgive and restore. Here are some lyrics that describe some of my life experiences.

I’m saved, and I’m so thankful
I’m blessed, and I’m so grateful
But somewhere along the way I took control
No joy, there’s only sorrow
I now fear each tomorrow
O, Lord Jesus, please restore me and make me whole

My foolish heart has drifted
My stubborn pride has lifted
My desires above Your plan for my life
Now my road is at a dead end
All the walls are closing in
O, Lord Jesus, deliver me from pain and strife

Lord, You know me and still love me
Your open arms are there to hold me
Even though I’ve wandered so far away
Please forgive me and hear me
I need Your presence to cheer me
I’m through running, Lord, I’m coming
Home to stay

You heard my feeble plea
Delivered and restored to me
Sweet fellowship and joy for every day
Now I walk in sweet victory
So amazed by your love for me
You are my Father, I’m Your child, and I’m home to stay

Lord, You know me and still love me
Your open arms are there to hold me
Now I feast at Your table every day
You supply my every need
I don’t ever want to leave
You are my Father, I’m Your child, and I’m home to stay

Lord, it’s good to have victory
Home safe with my family
You are my father, I’m Your child, and I’m home to stay
