We are excited to dig deep into chapter nine this week. As you have time on your own, read through the chapter and the accompanying Bible passages. Keep a notebook handy to jot down anything that touches your heart, encourages you, leaves you with questions. Through the week, as the LORD leads you, comment below with your thoughts or discoveries?

Brief summary: Before seeing her face to face, Isaac won the heart of Rebekah, who said โ€œyesโ€ and became his wife. Without seeing us face to face, the LORD JESUS has won the hearts of those who believe He is precious, those who say โ€œyesโ€ and become His bride. The author reached the calm after the storm of recent years, the long prayed-for chance for her husband to shift professional gears and pursue better health, and enjoyed precious moments with him to reflect and offer gratefulness to GOD. The LORD revealed Himself as the One who wins our hearts, who cares and keeps us, held and beloved, in His embrace!โฃ
