Led to Lament // The Arrival // Lamentations 3:22-33 // May 24 2015

God creates out of nothing. Wonderful you say. Yes, to be sure, but he does what is still more wonderful: he makes saints out of sinners.
— Soren Kierkegaard

Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when my people will not be scattered for their sin. Their suffering will no longer be known as exile, but as union. Their plundered homes will no longer be known as judgement, but as freedom. Their broken bodies and shed blood will no longer be known as punishment, but as God with them.
