I just started reading SheReadsTruth bible study on Hosea and decided where better to start than right here in the story where
“Our relationship with God is based on His faithfulness,
not our unfaithfulness.”
Take a look at my pages and then join me in studying SheReadsTruth study on Hosea.
Our wrong affections must be ousted by “the expulsive power of a new affection.”
We are a worshiping people. It’s in our spiritual DNA. Our hearts were made to hold to something, and we hold on with all our might. Thing is, we tend to worship the wrong thing. We worship dream homes and paychecks, pinterest boards and people. We worship what we lack and what we want, and sometimes we even worship ourselves. We want so desperately to be whole and happy and loved, but instead we’re a discontent, idol-making mess.
“Such is the grasping tendency of the human heart, that it must have a something to lay hold of—and which, if wrested away without the substitution of another something in its place, would leave a void and a vacancy as painful to the mind, as hunger is to the natural system…. The heart must have something to cling to…”
– Thomas Chalmers

Your work is so inspiring! I was just wondering though, does using thicker make your bible very bulky?
Thank you Lauren, that’s so kind of you to say. And about the thickets making it thick (lol) it does but I haven’t used a ton of them yet. I’d imagine about almost everyday is journaled on it will get thicker and thicker!
