Monday Medittions

Rebellion to Grace ~ Hosea 11-14

Eyes turned
Toward distractions, fixed upon idols
Away from love unrecognized.

Healer, Provider, Protector
Affection, compassion - long suffering.
'For I am God and not man'
Eyes turned
Toward pride of self, contemptuous
Blind, the cry of guilt unheard.

Return, Strive, Speak
Hear the voices sent - for blessing.
'Judah is unruly against God'
Walk rightly
Return, acknowledge no other God
Discern, fashioned gods are unanswered.

Healing, Providing, Protecting
Grace, blessing and forgiveness - freely giving
'I will answer him and care for him'
