"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

Super Sunday Scene, Song and Scripture

SUPER SUNDAY SCENE, SONG and SCRIPTURE What SONG or SCRIPTURE comes to your mind as you gaze upon this SCENE?
From "National Geographic" Coastal Landscape

Please leave your song or scripture in the comment or what you find SUPER this SUNDAY!

(I will post mine later in the day! Enjoy a SUPER SUNDAY! )

The sun has set on another day of the Lord! Thank you if you dropped by and/or left a comment.

The photo is a sunset on a marsh along the coast. Marshes have reeds. In God's Word, in Isaiah 42 (and Matthew 12 refers to it) it says:

..." a bruised reed He will not break..."

Many times, people use this verse to bring comfort in a tough situation, when it seems like one cannot bear anymore. A reed may bend but it won't break. Actually, a reed pierces or cuts.

However, this verse is from one of the major prophets, Isaiah. And prophets give warnings. So, rather than this being a verse showing an all merciful and compassionate God, it is letting us know that a final judgement will come. Indicated better by reading the full context.

Thus, the song that I thought of was "Bless the Broken Road" by SELAH (even though there is no road in this photo). The golden sun in the clouds leads to a heavenly road!

I believe that these came to bear heavily upon my mind as I join in prayer for comfort and peace in the road ahead for Angie and Todd Smith, from Selah. This past weekend, April 20th, they had a tribute to Audrey Carolyn, and I was sadly made aware of their whole story. I wept as Jesus wept as He walked this road with them, as many have and do. This testimony pierces the hearts of many but the bruised reed will not be broken, though the road may look that way now.

If you have not heard about their testimony of love or seen Angie's heartfelt song, slideshow and precious letter to her daughter, please go to her site "Bring the Rain" and let them know you care! http://audreycaroline.blogspot.com/2008/04/slideshow.html

Lord, Continue to surround Angie, Todd and family with Your Peace and send Your Holy Comforter daily in the weeks ahead. May they recall the words to their own songs and receive strength from the MESSAGE! May you "bless their broken road and lead them straight to You" and "point their way into Your Loving arms" and would You CARRY Angie, Todd and their lovely daughters into that healing place just as Angie says "I will carry you" carry them. Be with them, Lord as they "Turn to You" Jesus in Your sweet name, I pray...Amen
