After saying yesterday that I don't believe in coincidences, God proved the point. The readings for my quiet time today spoke so clearly--again!--that I just had to share. Because I'm so astounded at how much God loves me and how much he has to say to me about exactly where I am that I can't keep it all inside.
"I will...gather those who have been scattered. I will give them praise and honor in every land where they were put to shame. At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes," says the LORD. (Zephaniah 3:19-20, emphasis mine)
