No wonder CS Lewis talks about the need for us to be thickened up. Reading the prophet Hosea this morning with Pia, I really noticed the passage where the Israelites hear what God is saying and decide to return to him: "Come let us return to the LORD... He will heal us... on the third day he will restore us... ahhhhhhh its all going to be OK." They are really emphatic about it for about two passages. God's response?
Yeah right seacow.
Well it's a little more heartbroken than that... "Your love is like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears..."
Ooooooo this resonates with me. Lord thicken me up - I want to last more than just a few hours...
