It Came to Me Again

When a verse comes to me a few times, it usually means pay attention! Especially when the moment you see it, your heart jumps! Isaiah 55:10-12. I had sort of forgotten all about this verse being for me in this season. That's sort of the way it is with us humans hey! We forget. I'm so glad to be reminded, I really need the reminding.

"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst forth into song before you, and the trees of the fields will clap their hands" (Isaiah 55:13) .

Today in my Bible study I had missed the last day's homework, and was going to skip onto this week's rather than get behind, but felt I should just visit the pages for a few minutes. And there they were.... just staring at me. It was sort of the verses before it that spoke out to me today.

"So is my Word, that goes out from my mouth: it will not return empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (v.11)

So rather than just trying to FEEL the joy, claim it and try to live in it, it's more about HIM, letting HIM do it. He already has a purpose for every Word I have read and that He has put into my heart and mind. So it's up to HIM. He will give the joy, lead in peace, achieve His purpose. I guess it's up to me to just follow. So I'm looking for some leading, but know I don't have to control it all.

Phew, that's a relief... Remind me of this again tomorrow :)
I like the heading for the chapter-- "Invitation to the Thirsty". I need a drink!
Reminds me of this song that I love!
