The LORD is good and does what is right; He shows the proper path to those who go astray.” (Psalms‬ ‭25‬:‭8‬ NLT)

Jesse, a ginger tomcat, was 18 months old when he escaped from his cage in Staffordshire, England. Owners Lesley and Colin Corbett, and their daughters, Grace and Saskia, searched the area for days and put up posters – but they gave up hope of ever seeing him again as the years went by. But thanks to a microchip, the long-wandering cat was identified and brought back home eight years later. That’s almost an entire lifetime!

At some point, we all deviate from God’s best plan for our life. While some moments may be slight, others can last for years and leave remarkable scars. The good news, much like Jesse’s, is that there is always a way back home and into a life of planned purpose. It also leads to healing and restoration from the pain of our disobedience!

Whether through obstinance or guilt, many choose to stay gone. Don’t let your heart harden towards God. Come home! Whatever makes us run is never worth the result of our disobedience. Choose the path that leads to life, peace, and restoration! You are loved and wanted back home!

Go into that village over there,” Jesus told them. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.” (Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭2‬ NLT)

The Patiala Necklace was an item of rare beauty, designed by the house of Cartier in 1928 as a gift to the Maharaja Sir Bhupinder Singh. It had five rows of platinum chains adorned with 2,930 diamonds. It was encrusted with Burmese rubies among other jewels. The centerpiece was the seventh-largest diamond in the world, the famed DeBeers Diamond, a 234.6-carat yellow diamond, roughly the size of a golf ball. The necklace disappeared in 1948, only to resurface 50 years later with most all of its jewels still missing to this day.

All of us has lost something. While it may not be of the same astronomical value of the Patiala Necklace, which is around $30 million, it is still precious to us. Yet, God knows where all things are; nothing is hidden from Him. Just as He knew where a needed and available donkey could be found so He could fulfill prophecy and destiny, He also knows how to meet your needs and where to find your answers!

As you prepare spiritually to start your new week, be ready to be led by God’s hand, who knows what you need and when you need it. The missing DeBeers Diamond could be pinpointed today if He wanted to show you! Nothing is ever truly lost or missing with God! Just be willing to be led! You are loved today!
