Hosea- Week Four

This week's reading: Hosea 3, Romans 5:6-8, Exodus 20:1-3 It's not that I try to make the same mistakes over and over, but I am broken. Boy, am I broken. But I do. I make the same mistakes. Again and again. And I feel guilty. And I ask for forgiveness. And then I do it again. And again. …
