Father God, Your Word exhorts me to sow for myself righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up my unplowed ground; for it is time to seek You, Lord, until You come to shower righteousness on me! (Hos. 10:12).
For my Maker is my husband—the Lord Almighty is Your name—the Holy One of Israel is my Redeemer; You are called the God of all the earth.
You will call me back as if I were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit—a wife who married young, only to be rejected. With deep compassion You will bring me back. You may chasten me, but with everlasting kindness You will have compassion on me (Isa. 54:5-8).
