The Good Jew Seeking G-d

Here I am petitioning the Most High in the winter of 95 or 96. Is the God of Israel here at the base of the wall? Does He know what is written in the paper stuck between the stones?

I was struck by Jer 2:
V5. What injustice did your fathers find in Me, that they went afar from Me and walked after emptiness and became empty? 

Like Wow.... walked after emptiness..

v17 Have you not done this to yourself by forsaking the LORD your God when He led you in the way?

v19 Your own wickedness will correct you, and your apostasies will reprove you; know therefore and see what is evil and bitter for you to forsake the LORD your God, and the dread of Me is not in you, declares the Lord God of Hosts.

How sobering.... the dread of Me is not in you.  What is the  dread of God......
God wants His faithless sons to return to Him:

Jer 3:22 Return O faithless sons, I will heal your faithlessness, Behold we come to You For You are the LORD our God..

There is hope....not despair...Heal my faithlessness O Lord... Amen.
