Anyone looking for good news?
Anyone desire to read, or hear
something positive, uplifting and
encouraging to look forward to...
Even the wilderness and desert
will be glad in those days.
The wasteland will rejoice
and blossom with spring crocuses.
Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers
and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green
as the mountains of Lebanon,
as lovely as Mount Carmel
or the plain of Sharon.
There the Lord will display his glory,
the splendor of our God.
With THIS NEWS,..
strengthen those who have tired hands,
and encourage those who have weak knees.
Say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, and do not fear,
for your God is coming
to destroy your enemies.
He is coming to save you.”
And when He comes,
He will open the eyes of the blind
and unplug the ears of the deaf.
The lame will leap like a deer,
and those who cannot speak will sing for joy!
Springs will gush forth in the wilderness,
and streams will water the wasteland.
The parched ground will become a pool,
and springs of water
will satisfy the thirsty land.
Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish
where desert jackals once lived.
And a great road will go
through that once deserted land.
It will be named the Highway of Holiness.
Evil-minded people will never travel on it.
It will be only for those
who walk in God’s ways;
fools will never walk there.
Lions will not lurk along its course,
nor any other ferocious beasts.
There will be no other dangers.
Only the redeemed will walk on it.
Those who have been ransomed
by the Lord will return.
They will enter Jerusalem singing,
crowned with everlasting joy.
Sorrow and mourning will disappear,
and they will be filled with joy and gladness.
That is a whole lot of GOOD news!
That is news worth sharing!
Praise the Lord
for His Good News,
for He is the God who always
keeps His promises.
And we will be ransomed by Him
and sing as we walk along this road
safe and secure, free from harm...
filled with joy and gladness!
Word of God
train me, today...
To look forward to this day of perfect joy.
To not despair in this world's fear,
but trust that the eternity You promise
will far surpass this imperfect life.
