This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel says:
"In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it."
Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him! Isaiah 30:18
Andrew and I are doing a Lenten devotional. Today's reading was from Genesis. Why did Adam and Eve hide? The chapter says Adam was afraid. Perhaps he also was embarased and ashamed knowing his wrongs. The difference between the garden and now is that we have someone who took the place of that wrong and EVERY wrong that followed it. May we truly understand that love.. that our hearts may turn back to the ONE that created us.
May we spend these 40 days in repentance, rest, quietness and trust...
