You turned off the light and shut the door
You walked on out
Not looking back just kept on going
Life has a way of cause and effect
You kept doubting
Time flew by with wings as eagles.

Now you stand
In utter misery hands empty in despair
Looking at the door
You know what you need to do
You don’t have to knock
Just reach out and turn the key –
See the light underneath?
I have been waiting, I have remembered
Don’t hesitate, I know it is scary
But I can’t wait
To have you in My arms again.

**Zecharaiah is a Biblical name (Prophet) meaning: The LORD has remembered**

This is mercy. 
This is grace.
This is Jesus just waiting to for you to come to Him.
He never forgot you. He has never left you. HE HAS REMEMBERED YOU!
And He longs to embrace you with love as you’ve never felt it before. 
This is love. 

“And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.  Luke 15:20-24
Video: When God Ran by Phillips, Craig and Dean
I was so ashamed, all alone and so far away
But now I know He’s been waiting for this day
I saw Him run to
me, He took me in His arms
Held my head to His chest, said “My son’s come
home again”
Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes
With forgiveness in His voice I felt His love for me again
