You Wayward People

Back in Jeremiah.  One of my favorite OT books.

Come back to me, you wayward people.  I want to cure your waywardness.  Say, ‘Here we are. We come to you because you are the LORD our God.’ –Jeremiah 3:22

I am wayward.  Lord here I am.  You are my God.

What is the plan?  How do I escape?  By surrender?  I see quite a bit of the grace God pours out on me.  But it is never enough for the insatiable heart.

We do things to mask it, deflect it but it is superficial at best.  The heart, flesh, wants what the heart wants.  Always replacing God with one idol or another.  When do I take a stand against mine?

Yes, take steps but in the direction of God, of surrender to Him.  What will I give Him today?
