Cover to Cover:falling on deaf ears

Join us at Bev's for a complete review of this weeks readings.


The Lord, the God of their ancestors, repeatedly sent his prophets to warn them, for he had compassion on his people and his Temple. But the people mocked these messengers of God and despised their words. They scoffed at the prophets until the Lord’s anger could no longer be restrained and nothing could be done. 2 Chronicles 36:15-16


She made herself dirty by her sins and did not think about what would happen to her. Lamentations 1:9


Again and again I sent my servants the prophets, who said, 'Do not do this detestable thing that I hate!' But they did not listen or pay attention; they did not turn from their wickedness or stop burning incense to other gods. Jeremiah 44:4-5


You know, reading this, I can't think of anything to add to it. Other than how clearly it seems to mirror us today. We continue to be a nation that turns it's back on God. How long will He wait before His anger can no longer be restrained against us?


And yet, still, there is hope. Even in their darkest night, even in His fiercest anger, He offers hope.


'The days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will fulfill the gracious promise I made to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. 'In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David's line; he will do what is just and right in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. This is the name by which it will be called: The LORD Our Righteousness.' Jeremiah 33:14-16


But I will keep on hoping for your help; I will praise you more and more. I will tell everyone about your righteousness. All day long I will proclaim your saving power, though I am not skilled with words. Psalm 71:14-15


May His warnings not fall on deaf ears. And regardless of our circumstances, may we keep our hope in Him.


God's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up.They're created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over). He's all I've got left. Lamentations 3:22-24

He is all I have left! Beautiful post. I didn't get laid off today from my part time job, but I am not to work anymore this week. I will blog about it later.

Have a blessed day!
