Hi everyone.

This past week has been a very tough week for me. I have been home sick and it has not been much fun. The hard part for me is the feeling of helplessness. Also being sick is such a waste of my busy time. How selfish of me huh? God knows what we all need both spiritually, mentally and physically. I guess I needed to slow down and just be for a few days.

Today during my quiet time with God he reminded me of a Bible study I did awhile ago. This came at a time when I was praying to be used and asking God what direction He wanted to use me in. He answered that prayer. He even gave me guidelines through this study as a reminder of exactly what God will do for (me) us if we just ask. I thought I would share this with you.

Jeremiah 31:3-34 NIV

V3 . I have loved you with an everlasting love: GOD WILL GIVE US AN EVERLASTING LOVE

V4. I will build you up again: GOD WILL BUILD US UP AGAIN

V5. Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; the farmers will plant them and enjoy their fruit: GOD WILL MAKE US FRUITFUL AND TAKE CARE OF OUR HEALTH.

V6. There will be a day when watchmen cry out: GOD WILL WATCH OVER US.

V7. Oh Lord, Save your people: GOD WILL SAVE US.

V8. See, I will bring them from the land of the north and gather them from the ends of the earth: GOD WILL RESTORE US.

V10. He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd: GOD WILL SHEPHERD US.

V11. For the Lord will ransom Jacob and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they: GOD WILL REDEEM US.

V12. They will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord: GOD WILL BLESS US .

V13. I will turn their mourning into gladness I will give them comfort and joy : GOD WILL COMFORT US AND GIVE US JOY.

V14. I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and my people will be filled with my bounty: GOD WILL SATISFY US.

V16. This is what the Lord says: "Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded," declares the Lord: GOD WILL REWARD US .

V17. "So there is hope for your future," declares the Lord: GOD WILL GIVE US HOPE AND A FUTURE.

V18. You disciplined me like and unruly calf, and I have been disciplined: GOD WILL DISCIPLINE US.

V20. "I still remember him. Therefore my heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him." GOD REMEMBERS US AND WILL SHOW US COMPASSION AND FORGIVE US.

I know that some of you have been struggling with situations in your life that are out of control. You don't understand the whys. Your heart breaks because you feel there is never going to be an end. Some of you are angry and are unable to forgive or ask for forgiveness. I know you even feel that you are not worthy of Gods love. I have been there dear one. I have walked that long road of finding His redeeming love for me. I am still walking that road, step by step.

So I ask this of you, that this week in your quiet time with God pray this scripture back to yourself. Remember God is there to meet you where you are and on your terms, He loves you that much. He is there to meet all your needs. All He asks of us is to have an open and willing heart to receive what GOD WILL do for us.

He loves you so,
