Cords of Human Kindness

I love the Lord's love for Israel.
I love the Lord's love for me.

I am also a girl, so I LOVE the visuals in the Bible about this love. I am reading Hosea right now and I am finding it be-a-u-ti-ful.

I led them with cords of human kindness,
with ties of love;
I lifted the yoke from their neck
and bent down to feed them.
-Hosea 11:4

How amazing!!! I am glad that it is beautiful, that HE is beautiful. And I am glad that the Lord cares about it being beautiful, just like He cared enough about the Israelites to redeem them. I am thankful for the Lord's redemption in my life. He has redeemed much of late.

I feel loved tonight, and I like it.

I'm about to hit Hosea myself.

Can't wait.

The end of Jeremiah gets a bit dry... poor guy, stuck down in the cistern. At least he got fresh bread every day. ;)

But Hosea... man oh man. He gets me every time.

Can't wait.
