When you have a child and he gets off track (even in a small thing), you wait and hope. When he turns around and heads in the right direction again, it feels like a party. God has a lot of children.
“Search me, O God. . . . See if there is any hurtful or offensive way in me. . . .” Psalm 139:23-24
“The Lord . . . will delight in you with joy and gladness and mirth.” Zephaniah 3:17
