Teshuvah! The Return! Elul 2

Teshuvah! My favorite time of the year.

The return.
The second set of tablets.
A new and deeper understanding, sharing in the work of carving out the tablets. Presenting to Jehovah God, blank stones. Not for God to write something new on them, rather to rewrite His original plan.

Presenting our heart and mind to God, understanding we are forgiven and redeemed, allowing Him through His word to reprove, transform and renew our covenant. A renewal of our vows.

Day 2
2nd of Elul 5782
August 29, 2022

Required to return with two freshly carved stones. A new set of stones, freshly chiseled, eagerly awaiting the finger of The Great I Am to etch, engrave, carve, to form by cutting. Leaving a definite and intelligent, intelligible mark, deep incisions. Two stones. Ten words. An eternal mark.

An invitation and a responsibility to partner with, and become one with God cuts deep.

The first sign of a deep incision was from Adam’s side, the second cutting was on our Lord’s body.

The King is in the Field, and readily available to His people.

Legal U Turn
As You Go

Pay attention to the signs
Along the paths you walk.
Some are smooth and pleasing,
Others hard as rock.

Pay attention to the scenery,
As you go along your way,
There are many, many signs,
speaking, as if to say.

Yes this is the way,
Or do not venture here.
Others seemingly shouting;
Run, take cover, danger is near.

While we must be able
To discern as we travel,
Wisdom first in the heart,
As the mind works to unravel.

Thoughts locked down,
Unable to bend,
Will create a life
That has to mend.

““This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.””
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭31:33-34‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Don’t miss your appointment. God has carved out and appointed sacred times to meet with us.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
