“Return to Me and I will return to you.” Malachi 3:7

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”   Psalm 8:1

Malachi can wait! I just experienced a full lunar eclipse! It was pretty cool! You can see more pictures on Facebook. This was one time when I wished I had a really nice camera because the scene was majestic (and the light was a bit lacking!) See attachment for my best attempt with my little camera!

“The righteous will live by HIS faith.”       Habakkuk 2:4

First a necessary correction from an astute reader of yesterday’s GMU- all I did was leave one word out! “But, true to the God I continue to learn to know and love, He was NOT done with His people…”

Sorry for any theological confusion! Now I’ll try again today:

“He cares for those who trust Him.”        Nahum 1:7

Ok, not the MOST exciting book of the Bible I’ve ever read! It’s a three-page, three-chapter description of the destruction of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria (located on the Tigris River in north Iraq, in case you care!) They had been tormenting Judah, a part of God’s special people, who I guess deserved a bit of tormenting by someone because they certainly were not listening to and obeying God!

“He has shown you O man what is good. And what does the Lord require of you…?”       Micah 6:8

“Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.”           Jonah 2:8

It’s a very familiar story- Jonah and the “big fish.” But what are the lessons for me this morning. It’s only two pages long and 4 short chapters- read it and see what you find. Here’s what I found:

“You should not look down on your brother in the day of his misfortune.” Obadiah 12

Ok, this is one of the shortest books in the Old Testament and I must admit, as I looked at it, I was a bit perplexed about whether I could find anything in it to share with you. But I STILL believe God is faithful to our faithfulness in spending time with Him.

“When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me.”   Hosea 13:6

What’s a God to do!? Just a verse today that caught my attention in my book-for-the-day of the conundrum that God places Himself in as He tries to love me and care for me. I am trapped in a society and culture that continues to bombard me with ego-centrism and it takes its toll sometimes.

“Daniel purposed in his heart not to defile himself…”      Daniel 1:8

Daniel is my book for the day, but Brennan Manning is still my focus for the week! Daniel’s fame in our understanding of his book stems from the idea that, though in captivity in heathen Babylon, he decided that nothing was going to distract him from staying true to God. And God honored that commitment! Situations may alter my approach to live but never my commitment to stay true to God and His ways. It worked for Daniel; it will work for me; and for you!
