How can I give you up Ephraim? How can I hand you over Israel?… My heart is changed within me; my compassion is aroused. … I will not carry out my fierce anger nor will I devastate Ephraim again.
They will follow the Lord; he will roar like a lion.
They will come from Egypt, trembling like sparrows… fluttering like doves. I will settle them in their home.
I am like a sparrow. A timid being easily startled and scared. Considered by some to be a nuisance. My whole being is not amount to much… can be held in one hand. But it’s okay as long as I am gathered up by you. Then I’ll be somebody special.
I woke up this morning Saturday October 10, 2015 without knowing what I will do. I’m not worried. Lord, I know that I don’t have to be somebody. I just need to be known by you. You just want us to come to you. You’re always waiting.
So here I am. I brought all of me — uncertainties, plans, worries, desires, dreams. I put my little head against your bosom. Like a child asking for things. Lord I pray that let everything happen according to your will.
