33 chilean miners...

today's news was amazing and wonderful! the world watching God's work unfold was awesome...and i went to His Word to see what He would say to me.

and i found...

"Hear my prayer, Lord;
listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you,
because you answer me.

Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
no deeds can compare with yours.
All the nations you have made
will come and worship before you, Lord;
they will bring glory to your name.
For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
you alone are God."

psalm 86:6-10

monday morning reading...

this morning i was drawn to hosea. i know, weird book, but God brought me to it and He spoke. and i's what came to me.

chapter two.
it's about me and the Lord.

vs. 5..."she said, i will go after my lovers, who give me my food and my water, my wool and my linen, my olive oil and my drink", chasing after things of this world, stuff i don't need, time i spend recklessly...

vs. 7..."she will chase after her lovers but not catch them; she will look for them but not find them.", never content with what i have, always looking for the next deal, the next thing, another time stealer...a God-sized hole will not be filled with things of this world...

vs. 8..."she has not acknowledged that I was the one...", who needs to give more praise, more thanks, more time to God...

vs. 9-13..."I will take back...I will expose...I will stop...I will ruin...I will punish...", when God needs to discipline...

vs. 15..."I will give her back her vineyards and will make the Valley...a door of hope.", so very thankful that His mercies are new every morning!

vs. 16..."you will call me 'my husband', you will no longer call me 'my master'"...because i am learning to fall in love with Him and who He is...

vs. 19-20..."I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord."

vs. 23..."and they will say, "You are my God".
