So my little girl is still sleeping on her bedroom floor.Almost every night we have to scoop her up and place her where she should be--safe and warm in her bed.

We've probably put her back in her bed a hundred times, and it may be a hundred more as we go forward. But we'll keep picking her up and restoring her to her right place.

A thousand times I've failed, still Your mercy remains
and should I stumble again, I'm caught in Your grace

These lyrics are running through my mind as I consider how many, many, many times our God scoops us off the ground and restores us to our right place--abiding in Him.

And should I stumble again, and should you stumble again, He'll continue to restore us.


And again.

And again.
Restore us to Yourself, O Lord!
Lamentations 5:21
"If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me," says the Lord.
Jeremiah 15:19
Restore us, LORD God Almighty; Make Your face shine on us, that we may be saved.
Psalm 80:19
