“HOSEA”

…is the new Women’s bible study at Anastasia Baptist Church here in St. Augustine, FL.  BAM!!!  This class just started on Monday, 9/14/15- 2 days before my 20th wedding anniversary.  Funny, but I had NO idea that the study would cover “HOSEA” and the love story between him and his unlikely wife, Gomer.  Yep, this love story is  “DIFFICULT” to grasp by reading its 14 chapters directly from the Bible.  Hhhmmm…Hosea & Gomer’s love story = God & Israel’s love story = your & my love stories.  ALL love stories, including those between God, spouses, families, friends, co-workers, communities, our country, our world.  Pretty “DEEP” stuff, folks.  Main concepts include, but are not limited to:

I AM CHOSEN.

YOU ARE CHOSEN.

WE ARE CHOSEN.

I AM LOVED.  YOU ARE LOVED.  WE ARE LOVED.

Hhhmmm…WHY???  “JUST BECAUSE!!!”  Aaahhhhhh!!!  I LOVE IT!!!  We are ALL chosen.  We are ALL loved .  JUST BECAUSE God is who He is.  GOD IS LOVE, folks!!!  BAM!!!  “IT IS…WHAT IT IS”!!!  GOD IS LOVE.  LOVE IS GOD.  Get it???  Got it???  GOOD!!!

I do NOT have to earn God’s love.  GOD IS LOVE.  I accept Him, graciously.  I accept His Love willingly.  It is MINE…for the taking.  MINE…for the enjoying!!!  MINE…for the sharing!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

WILL YOU ACCEPT GOD’S LOVE???  AND WILL YOU PLEASE “HELP” TO SHARE IT FORWARD???

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!  

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
