So it's Monday.....and the verse that He gave me so long ago, that had such meaning then, has an even different meaning now...not what I ever expected or the way I expected it, but nonetheless, here I am. It was foretelling then, but it means something now, ties it all together.
Isaiah 42: 6-9
I am the Eternal One. By righteousness I have called you.
I will take you by the hand and keep you safe.
You are given as a covenant between Me and the people:
a light for the nations, a shining beacon to the world.
7 You will open blind eyes so they will see again.
You will lead prisoners, blinking, out from caverns of captivity,
from cells pitch black with despair.
8 I am the Eternal One.
I Am is My name.
My beauty is unique, a weighty splendor all My own.
And nothing else—no idols could possibly gain My praise.
9 Look here, what’s done is done and gone.
The now is new, and there’s hope in the not-yet.
I will tell you what’s to come, even before the events are brand-new.
The last two lines of this verse speak so much to me....so much time, so much wandering, yet He still bring His plan to pass. His way and in His time. Thankful
