“…turn your attention and seek the Eternal One while it is still possible; call on Him while He is nearby. Let those who are busy plotting violence and doing wrong stop right now, turn, and do right. Let them turn back to the Eternal so they can experience His compassion.” (Isaiah 55: 6-7, the Voice Translation)
We can all stop what we are doing and redirect our attention. We can willingly and joyfully look away from the temptation to fear, to argue, to doubt and shout. No matter where we seem to be on our personal path, one timely turn toward the Eternal One can change everything for the better.
God is always nearby. It is our own thoughts and actions that would seem to distance us from Him. Yet truly we are only closing our eyes to that Love, that peace, that active grace that is steadfastly at hand. God’s compassion is as infinite as He is. And this verse reminds us that no matter where we seem to be or even how far we’ve strayed from goodness, God is calling us back to His care, His rightness, our true being.
It is a turn, and a return, to ourselves. We can heed this demand and direct our attention to God, to Truth, and away from limitation, shame, worry, anger, and burden. We all have the right and ability to experience God’s nearness, His healing kindness, and to gratefully rejoice today!
