Friends... They are amazing

This morning a dear friend shared a verse with me.  It really struck a chord in me so I thought I would pass it along to you as well.

1 "Come, let us return to the LORD.
       He has torn us to pieces
       but he will heal us;
       he has injured us
       but he will bind up our wounds.

 2 After two days he will revive us;
       on the third day he will restore us,
       that we may live in his presence.

 3 Let us acknowledge the LORD;
       let us press on to acknowledge him.
       As surely as the sun rises,
       he will appear;
       he will come to us like the winter rains,
       like the spring rains that water the earth."

 -Hosea 6:1-3

He will appear... He will come to us.  He will heal us.  He will bind up our wounds.  He will revive us, restore us!  Hallelujah!!! 

Sometimes I forget that the enemy's hold on me is nothing like the hold that my God has on me.  I am so thankful for a God who forgives, who loves, who cherishes, who heals and who wants nothing more than for me to give Him my life.  It's funny, I always found myself so afraid to let go and give up control over my life, scared of where it may lead me... Turns out life becomes a lot more fruitful and blessed when you let go and give the control to God.

God walks beside me, He lives inside of me.  And so I sing Hallelujah!
