Jeremiah 16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 The word of the Lord also came to me saying, 2 “You shall not take a wife for yourself nor have sons or daughters in this place.” 3 For thus says the Lord concerning the sons and daughters born in this place, and concerning their mothers who bear them, and their fathers who beget them in this land: 4 “They will die of deadly diseases, they will not be lamented or buried; they will be as dung on the surface of the ground and come to an end by sword and famine, and their carcasses will become food for the birds of the sky and for the beasts of the earth.” 5 For thus says the Lord, “Do not enter a house of [a]mourning, or go to lament or to console them; for I have withdrawn My peace from this people,” declares the Lord, “My lovingkindness and compassion. 6 Both great men and small will die in this land; they will not be buried, they will not be lamented, nor will anyone gash himself or shave his head for them. 7 Men will not break bread in mourning for them, to comfort anyone for the dead, nor give them a cup of consolation to drink for anyone’s father or mother. 8 Moreover you shall not go into a house of feasting to sit with them to eat and drink.” 9 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Behold, I am going to [b]eliminate from this place, before your eyes and in your time, the voice of rejoicing and the voice of gladness, the voice of the groom and the voice of the bride.
10 “Now when you tell this people all these words, they will say to you, ‘For what reason has the Lord declared all this great calamity against us? And what is our iniquity, or what is our sin which we have committed against the Lord our God?’ 11 Then you are to say to them, ‘It is because your forefathers have forsaken Me,’ declares the Lord, ‘and have followed other gods and served them and bowed down to them; but Me they have forsaken and have not kept My law. 12 You too have done evil, even more than your forefathers; for behold, you are each one walking according to the stubbornness of his own evil heart, without listening to Me. #mood#kaws#supreme #💯 🦀
Trust in love
This is something that I tell myself on the regular.
I used to dream of a love that was written in stories and movies.
I realized that there is nothing wrong with that.
I also realized that the love told in the stories is someone else's protective. .
To me love is magical.
A love between friends will be different than love between you and a significant other.
A love shared with nature will be different than love shared with family.
Each love may be different but each love is so very special. .
Love is more than just a word.
It is your actions, your thoughts and your vibe.
From love we can share such a beautiful story.
Self love is where I truly learned to express my whole self.
From here I am able to build each and every relationship from a foundation of love.
May we continue to grow, breathe and be.
May we continue to trust in love. 💜
