Not a long post today. I woke up feeling very disconnected and chaotic this morning. After taking the time to talk to my Father and pray for peace of mind, I reread my next installment for the relationship builder. Afterwards, I just opened my bible to a random page.
Hosea 14: 3-8
Assyria cannot save us, nor can our war horses. Never again will we say to the idols we have made, ‘You are our Gods.’ No, in You alone do the orphans find mercy.
The Lord says, ‘Then I will heal you of your faithlessness; My love will know no bounds, for My anger will be gone forever. I will be to Israel like a refreshing dew from heaven. Israel will blossom like the lily; it will send roots deep into the soil like the cedars in Lebanon. Its branches will spread out like beautiful olive trees, as fragrant as the cedars of Lebanon. My people will again live under my shade. They will flourish like grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as the wines of Lebanon. O Israel, stay away from the idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from Me.’
Then the study guide…
“When our will is weak, when our thinking is confused, and when our conscience is burdened with a load of guilt, we must remember that God cares for us continually; His love knows no bounds. When friends and family desert us, when coworkers don’t understand us, and when we are tired of being good, God’s love knows no bounds. When we can’t see the way or seem to hear God’s voice, and when we lack courage to go on, God’s love knows no bounds. When our shortcomings and awareness of our sins overcome us, God’s love knows no bounds.”
My next post can wait. Father, I read you loud and clear!
