I read this passage this morning in connection with a devotional by Dale and Junaita Ryan and was reminded again of God’s faithfulness and goodness to His people.






The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
       “I have loved you with an everlasting love;
       I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
I will build you up again
       and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel. 
Again you will take up your tambourines
       and go out to dance with the joyful.
Again you will plant vineyards
       on the hills of Samaria; 
the farmers will plant them
       and enjoy their fruit.

 For the LORD will ransom Jacob
       and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they.
 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;
       they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD—
the grain, the new wine and the oil,
       the young of the flocks and herds. 
They will be like a well-watered garden,
       and they will sorrow no more.
 Then maidens will dance and be glad,
       young men and old as well. 
I will turn their mourning into gladness;
       I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:3-5, 11-13)
