What is God waiting for?

So the LORD must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help. Is. 30:18

Sometimes what God is waiting for is me. God is much more interested in having us return to His arms than in meting out retribution. Even when we pursue our own agendas and reject those who try to talk sense into us, the love and mercy of God is waiting for us if we are willing to turn around.

Lord, thank you for welcoming me back when I fail You.
