"Therefore I am now going to allure her;
I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her."
Hosea 2:14

The Lord has brought the above verse to me three times in the past week. I really feel like this is what God is doing with me during the two weeks that I have "come home". Not only have I come home to my family, but I have come home to my Father.

"Allure" means "love affair". Don't we as women long for an intimate love affair? We want to be passionately in love and have someone enraptured with our beauty. Jesus is that Prince on the white horse, who has come riding in and swept me off my feet. He has taken me into the 'desert', a good place, a needed place, a place of solitude, with no distractions, and He is daily speaking tenderly to me. My heart is so full. He is drawing me so close that I can hear His heartbeat.

Do you hear the sound of approaching hoofbeats? Does He need a little 'desert time' with you?
