Read: Hosea 11
My heart churns within Me; My sympathy is stirred. Hosea 11:8
Bible In One Year: Genesis 37-39
The bumper sticker on the blue van caught my attention:
CHOOSE TO FEEL
As I considered those words, I noticed the billboards I was passing. They urged me to choose things that would keep me from feelingalcohol to deaden emotional pain; fat-laden food to alleviate feelings of emptiness; luxury cars and other expensive items to lessen feelings of worthlessness.
Many of the temptations that lure us away from God do so by promising to relieve the emotional hurt we all feel because of the consequences of sinour own sin or someone else's.
God set a different example. Instead of becoming numb to the pain our sin causes, He chose to suffer the results of it. Through the prophet Hosea, God expressed the heart-wrenching pain of losing a wayward child. "I stooped and fed them," He said tenderly. "I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love" (11:3-4). Still they rejected their heavenly Father. Reluctantly, He let them face the consequences.
When we choose to feel the full range of our emotions, we come to a fuller understanding of the God who created us in His imagethe image of One who feels.
It's okay to feel that all is not right in the world. God feels that way too! Julie Link
I Love that Picture you Included with your Ping, dear Billie! It's cute! : )
(((((Billie)))))))! I cracked up when I saw the "Southern Belles" - you really outdid yourself with that. But, I could say that about *all* of the graphics that you have made.
My most favorite, of course, is on my home page (and my wall at home):
The wedding picture we never had until *you* created it. I am eternally grateful.
Love and ((((((((HUGS))))))
Good afternoon..I'm finally movitated to check in....brain still running in disfunction mode.
Free, it is wonderful to see you here! I so hope that you can make it to the Ball or that we can at least meet up with you somewhere while we are in DC. I am getting very anxious to leave. Will we have good weather? I sure hope so. I've gotten soft from living in CA. I don't take the cold well at all.
Have a great day, y'all.....what's left of it. :-)
Lookin good Billie. All you ladies sure are purty.
