Solitude with God

So, I'm going to start off this blog by posting about my solitude time with the Lord last week and just some major things that He spoke to me.

I decided to read from Isaiah 43 because my pulse group leader, Audrey, was encouraging us with some verses from that chapter the day before. Reading it got me to reading chapter 44 and so on... So! anyways, I  came to just realizing that even after God just bashed on the Israelites for some 30 odd chapters he is then like, okay guys... even though you royally screwrd up and have created idols and ignored me and not remembered what I have done for you, I have not forgotten you. God tells them that He wants Himself to be known to them, He wants them to know He is God and He pursued them to say: look,

"I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your offenses like the morning mist.
Returned to me, I have redeemed you."
- Isaiah 44:22

AHHHH! What an amazing love that God has for us, that he looks on us wretched sinners and says come back to me for I love you so much that I have not only looked past your sins but I have redeemed you. Mmmm that just totally baffles my mind. I am so thankful for that solitude time, I just feel like God was showing me His love in an incredible way for those two hours and I am now constantly remembering how much He loves us everyday.

Today in our pulse group we were talking about that song, How He Loves by the David Crowder band, and just how God is jealous for us and he pursues us even in our weaknesses and I really felt that through these few chapters so if you have the time, and we all know we do have time, please read Isiah 43 and then just keep on going because you too will be so blessed!
