I will not leave you alone. You are mine. I know each of My sheep by name. You belong to Me.
If you think I am finished with you, if you think I am a small god you can keep at a safe distance, I will pounce upon you like a roaring lion, tear you to pieces, rip you to shreds, and break every bone in your body.
Then I will mend you, cradle you in My arms, and kiss you tenderly.
Come on! Let’s return to the Lord!
He Himself has torn us to pieces, but He will heal us!
He has injured us, but He will bandage our wounds! ~Hosea 6:1
