In the book of Hosea, we find a beautiful verse in which God expresses His love to us:

But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her.
– Hosea 2:14

When I take a step away from God, He takes two steps closer to me and tells me to look at Him. To come to Him with anything that is bothering me. Something that makes me want to shut Him out or not involve Him in areas of my life is when I feel ashamed of my sins. I find that I will shut Him out in my shame, pain or fear.

The beauty in Hosea 2:14 lies in how He calls upon us; how He “will win me back once again”. Sin makes us believe that we deserve less of His love; it drives us away from Him. But when we abide in our Saviour and He in us, He prunes us from our destructive thoughts. Sometimes God has to take us out in the desert to show us who He truly is. We see His true beauty when we have been forgiven, we see His true beauty when He meets us in our pain or disappointment. He is the God who sees you. So whatever you are going trough, make sure you invite Him in that area of your life.

Abide in me, and I in you.
- John 15:4
