Hey guys, I hope no one’s too mad at me for posting a day late. My computer hasn’t been cooperating with me very well lately, and by that i mean my hard drive was corrupted and i lost everything. Luckily our buddy Matt, who is producing our new song, is pretty good with a mac so he got me all fixed up and now I am able to write blogs once more.

This week I wanted to share a short devotional to you that I found online by: Carol B. Weaver (Texas, USA). Enjoy.

The ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. -Isaiah 51:11 (NIV)

WE are all born sinners, and for some reason the ones we hurt the most are usually the ones we love the most. Jacob was no different. He deceived his father and stole from his brother. Jacob was forced to leave home for many years because of his sin. However, there came a time when God called Jacob to return to his family, to go back home and face those he had hurt.

One part of returning home, or going back, is repentance. When we allow sin to live in our hearts, it separates us from the blessings that God wants to give us. Recently, I’ve been called by God to return home, to repent, to come clean about my past. This process has involved confession to my family about sinful choices I made in my late teens. Like Jacob, I deceived and robbed my family of truth.

Going back home can be very scary. Yet when God directs us to make the journey and we obey, we have the promise that blessings will follow. Those who return to God through his Son, Jesus, are the “ransomed of the Lord.” We who obey will return and receive everlasting joy. With each step I gain a glimpse of this truth: Joy is on the horizon. God is faithful.

I hope that all of you were able to take something from reading that. And I hope everyone’s week was amazing! There hasn’t been much going on that you guys haven’t read about already. I’m just excited for you to get to hear the new jam! See you guys next week!

  1. Naw, who’d be mad? Weren’t you recording yesterday? Staying busy…
    I’m sorry about your poor computer! I’d die if that happened to mine. I begged my older brother for an external hard drive two Christmas’s ago…it has been a delight. Mayhap you should browse around for one?
    How awesome that you posted this devotional. The issue of “returning home” with sins is something I was thinking about yesterday. My next youngest sister and myself have been discussing this kind of thing recently. Thanks for posting the devotional, I really appreciate it, it’s definitely something I’ve been thinking about / struggling with lately.
    Looking forward to hearing the new song, thanks for all the work you guys put into it!
