The kids came up with lots more. He longed for her to come home. Then you had the Wye River agreement, and every other kind of peace resolve since, but they will all avail nothing in establishing peace. We choose not to remember because to remember brings inconvenience, or something displeasing to our own flesh. There is a real sense of possession. We can only do that through His strength, but He calls us to do more than preach a message — He calls us to live it first of all. .
For the first time in my life, I never wanted anyone so much to love and be loved. I spent more time trying to get out of the house to be with this man than I spent trying to care for my children, let alone teach them what a Godly home and marriage look like. The whole conclusion of the age waits for it. This has been the hardest month of my life, I'm confused, hurt and angry but through it all I love him and refuse to turn my back on him. This causes so much pain for the spouse that is faithful and the children involved when a the prodigal is involved in an adulterous affair that he refuses to give up. God bless you Anonymous Thank you.
I fell in love with him 2 years ago like never before. God takes positive steps to help us want to please Him. I am a firm believer that everyone can change, no matter what they have done in their life. They are going to fear His goodness more than they ever feared His judgments, and that will be the final and conclusive thing that makes Israel the Israel of God. Choose a coloring page that best fits your aspiration. You cannot get your husband to change. But what it is now.
Since the Lord viewed Israel as His wife, He viewed her worship of other gods as spiritual adultery. Go to God with your broken heart and with your pain, tell him your troubles. This can be confusing if you do not understand the way God often unfolds His prophetic things. The problem with the wedding announcement was it came with a dreadful prophecy. Secondly, they need to understand that this was a giant object lesson to show Israel what they were doing themselves. He couldn't even be sure the children she bore were his. How can you keep the wrongs for which you have forgiven others from creeping back into your mind and destroying your peace? Are you willing to be more than a mouthpiece for Him, but to be an example as well, no matter what it will cost? Now, as someone who is a recovering disloyal spouse, I constantly and I do mean it.
Even though the Jews were unfaithful to Him and committed spiritual adultery with false gods and pagan idols, He still loved them. We need to love like that. Keep on doing what you're doing with this blog! This was the last straw. He wants to be with us, and for us to learn about Him. It includes whatever is required to strip the Jew from their philosophies and their categories, in order to make them confront the grit issue of themselves versus God.
But it boils down to this. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. Then I will give her her vineyards from there, and the valley of Achor as a door of hope Hosea 2:15a. We were newlyweds when we were stormed with disagreements and misunderstandings —but no third party involved. Anonymous thank u so very much for your story and for being so real.
She thinks that all she is good for is to be a piece of merchandise used by men. In fact, Christ was simply saying in a captivating way that there is no end to forgiveness. He actually paid for her, brought her home, and eventually restored her to her position as his wife. I was shocked, humiliated, hurt… I sent him emails for days and weeks but no response. In order to preserve the sanctity of marriage, still other interpreters argue that Hosea did not actually marry Gomer. His beloved was going off with other men. You just never know how the Lord will use your story! I have barely been out of our marital home for 2 months.
Life isn't always pretty but I truely believe God can make beauty from these ashes and stories like yours make it easier to remember that. But then I pray for him, just being so in love with him that I forgive him. Yes I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in lovingkindness and in compassion. There must be, therefore, a way by which this restoration comes that can be seen as coming from the Creator-Redeemer Himself. God directed him to take her as his wife, and so it was that Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim, became the unlikely wife of the budding young preacher.
