Read Redeeming Love for my book club. What an awesome story. It is based on the story of Hosea and Gomer. Hosea was a prophet in the OT and God told him to marry Gomer - who was a prostitute. She left his love and security several times to return to her old life.
In the book, Sarah traveled a hard road. There were many times, I had tears streaming down my face. This is the type of story I love.
I also realized how much I keep going back to the old life because it is safe...no, it's not. It's familiar. Safety is in Jesus. He knows my past, my present and my future - what could be more secure!
Read it. It is a beautiful story showing us the Savior's love for us.
