Prodigal's Song


I love this song “When God Ran”, written by Phillips Craig & Dean and I love the way it is represented visually in this video. I love this because am one of the prodigals whom God ran towards. And these words of the song tell my journey with God.
“The day I left home I knew I’d broken His heart
And I wondered then if things could ever be the same
Then one night I remembered His love for me
And down that dusty road ahead I could see
It was the only time – it was the only time I ever saw Him run
With forgiveness in His voice I felt His love for me again
He ran 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 He said, “Son”, He called me Son
He said, “Son do you know I still love you?”
I was so ashamed, all alone and so far away
But now I know He’s been waiting for this day
He ran 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 He said, “Son”, He called me Son
He said, “Son do you know I still love you?”

And for anyone who is far away from our heavenly Father, my humble request is that I came home one day and He ran towards me and accepted me. Don’t be afraid, COME HOME. Father is waiting.
