I Want You Back!


My daughter, Carla got me watching The Voice.  I love music and I haven't been a devoted fan.  I can only watch on Tuesdays and I have been known to be reading a book while watching.  Anyway I said all that to say that one of the people on it sang, with some of the kicked off singers, the Jackson 5's I Want You Back.  I grew up in Detroit so I grew up with the Jackson 5 and I love Motown.  I love how the Motown songs tell a story.  I also grew up on country music because that was what my parents listened to, so I had to listen also.  Funny how two such different genres of music both tell stories.  But I'm off where I was going with this.....

As they were singing on The Voice tonight, the song I Want You Back, it came to me that that  is what Jesus is saying to all those out there who aren't serving Him.  "I WANT YOU BACK"  If you have wondered away or walked away from your relationship with the Lord.  He wants you back!   I hope the message comes through when you are watching The Voice and hear a song like that.  I hope the message comes through when you wake in the middle of the night and feel like something is amiss.  I hope the message comes through when you are in the middle of Walmart.  I hope the message comes through when all is going well or all is a big hot mess.  No matter what is going on in your life.  He wants you back!!!

I used to tell my girls when they were little as I would rub their back...No matter where you go, no matter who you are with, no matter what you do, I will always love you.

The Lord is like that.  No matter what, He loves you and Wants you back!  I must add that if you have never given your life to the Lord He want you too!  We were made to have a relationship, personally with the Lord Jesus.
