The years she wasted now leave her feeling weathered. So she tries to hide her leathery heart but she covers up what she cannot hide. And she allows the things that happened years ago to have a lasting impression.
Could it be that we have done the same?
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity."
