Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, we will obey the Lord our God. ~ Jeremiah 42:6

I will restore you. But … all who are determined to go and settle … not one of them will survive or escape disaster.~Jeremiah 42: 10-12 & 17

Father, help me to settle for your best, regardless of how hard the circumstances may be. Build me up.

Through Your Own Fault …

Through Your Own Fault ...Through your own fault you will lose the inheritance I gave you. Jeremiah 17:4
