The story behind the the song
It’s not uncommon that people think that God is angry at them which leads to sense of separation. Some people fear opening their hearts to God because they are scared that He will express His disappointment regarding their decisions. If you’re feeling far from God, He’s not wanting you to come home to shout at you… He desires a moment of reconciliation and a continued relationship. He enthusiastically welcomes us home, He celebrates our return and is eager to restore our wearied souls.
We were all created to part of God’s family.
We’ve all turned away from Him at some point.
When we end up in a mess, there’s a loving Father eager to welcome us home as sons and daughters.
