"Whether those rebels listen to you or not, they will know that a prophet has been among them.

"But you, mortal man, must not be afraid of them or of anything they say. They will defy and despise you; it will be like living among scorpions. Still, don't be afraid of those rebels or of anything they say. You will tell them whatever I tell you to say, whether they listen or not..."

(Ezekiel 2:5-7)

My heart burned so hard with those verses.

It's a rare night that I'll choose to pick up the Word. Long were the days since I've felt that my life and my words were not my own.

My husband patted my leg. "Someday you'll go back to the bible, and you'll like what you find there, I think."
