Sunday Musings | He Will Be Like The Dew

Hosea 14:4-7 describes how the Lord will be like the dew that causes the lily to blossom. 

In this scripture, God is promising to heal and restore Israel when they repent and turn to Him. This restoration will include growth (he shall blossom), beauty (like the lily), and strength (take root like the trees).

In our society, we are often encouraged to "bloom where we're planted." What better way to bloom than by repenting and turning to the Lord and allowing Him to fill our lives with growth and beauty and strength!

This illustration is actually a coloring page that's been cut out and adhered to a blank page in my interleaved Bible. The background is a bright pink Gelato that I added to the page using a sponge dauber. I also used the Gelato and one of the blossoms from the illustration to highlight the verse on the opposite page. The scripture journaling was added with a black Micron pen and the page is completed with the addition of some puffy crosses.
