Intensity

I just listened intently to someone talk intensely about the gospel, and also what it means to be a true disciple of Christ. My head hurts from that much intensity in a four hour block of time.

Something I have been realizing especially reading through Hosea… is how much of myself I give away to this world. I run to other things before I run to God. BUt he is a jealous God, he wants all of me. Not just what’s left over. The world leaves me dry and empty, I am not prepared to spend time with God. I no longer can give him my best, but what is left, which is sometimes nothing. BUt what God is worthy of…is everything!

He is breaking me and making me His own!!

Hosea 2:14-15
” Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. And there I will give her her vineyards and make the Vally of Achor a door of hope. And there she shall answer as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.”

Acres of Hope

He will allure her
He will pursue her
And call her out
To wilderness with flowers in His hand
She is responding
Beat up and hurting
Deserving death
But offerings of life are found instead

She will sing
She will sing
Oh, to You
She will sing as in the days of youth
As You lead her away
To valleys low
To acres of hope
Acres of hope

Here in the valley
Walk close beside me
Don’t look back
For love is growing vineyards up ahead
You have called me master
And though you’re in the dark here
Call me friend
And call me lover and marry me for good

She will sing
She will sing
Oh, to You
She will sing as in the days of youth
As You lead her away
To valleys low
To acres of hope
Acres of hope

How the story ends is
Love and tenderness in Him
Not safe, but worth it
So the valley’s up ahead
Or the ones we live
We’ll sing together
We’ll sing together

We will sing
We will sing
Oh, to You
We will sing as in the days of youth
As You lead us away
To valleys low
To acres of hope
Acres of hope
