"Let us test and examine our ways,
and return to the Lord!
Let us lift up our hearts and hands
to God in heaven"
In the 3rd chapter of Lamentations, just as i was getting a bit depressed by the post Judgement words of Jeremiah, i hit the mind staggeringly excellent declaration of 3:25-26. And then the above passage which, i guess is a lively call to all of us. A call to examine, return to Jesus and to respond to Him by raising our hearts and hands to God in heaven.
These passages stand out like roses amidst war-torn rubble. They are heavy and weighty with call and declaration. But smell great to the soul!
