Turn Around

266. Turn Around

A dozen years ago I wrote a song for some children’s vacation church school curriculum about God forgiving us. The words went like this:

Turn around, God forgives

Mistakes you make, as you live.

Turn around, God alone

Says to you “Come on home.”

It’s the turn around part that I think is most important. When I make a mistake, I need to turn around and do things differently. I need to not just keep repeating the same mistake over and over again. It’s important for me to decide that I CAN turn, and make a fresh start, and that over and over again, God will welcome me home.

I often used American Sign Language with this song, and the sign I love the most is the one for forgive. You take one hand and hold it out palm up, and you take the other hand palm down and wipe off the outstretched hand. You literally wipe the slate clean. Your mistake is forgiven. And you turn around.
