Hosea 6:1-6

Advent, Day 5

Morning dew on grass blades

“Your love is like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears.”

This is one of those passages that grabs me consistently in so many different ways. I read it and sit, almost stunned by its beauty and its challenge to my soul.

This morning the line quoted above was like a 2x4 between the eyes.

How often is this true of me regarding God?

Whenever I don't get my way with God my love grows cold so quickly. Whenever I experience any disappointment with my wants and desires my love dissipates.

“Whenever” happens more than I'd like to admit.

I am sure glad that Amy's love for me is not like my love for God.

What's wild to me is that God has an amazing track record in my life. When things really matter, God has made God's presence felt in my life. God in God's grace has helped me gain perspective sooner rather than later in those seasons of significant pain.

God's love for me has been enduring. God's love for me has proven faithful.

Yet, my love for God is like the morning mist.
