Jeremiah

I'm struggling a bit here, yet when I've pushed myself to get on with it - I've been so blessed!

Today's a good example!

Listen to this

Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry; though they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead, I will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague."
Jer 14
What's encouraging about that?- you may well ask! On its own, nothing at all!

But listen to this

If you repent, I will restore you
that you may serve Me. (Jer 15:19)


That's said to Jeremiah, but it's also said to us. It's a blessing and an encouragement to press in. And on this the first day of lent, it's especially wonderful!

be blessed

Amen! The key is repentance. Thank you for reminding us on this first day of Lent.
