Today’s reading is from the prophet Isaiah, chapter 35, verses 8 through 10. As we listen, can I open my heart to what the Holy Spirit might want me to hear? Are there any words or phrases that specially stand out to me today?
8 A wide road will go through the land. It will be called the Way of Holiness. Only those that lead a holy life can use it. “Unclean” and foolish people can’t walk on it. 9 No lions will use it. No hungry wild animals will be on it. None of them will be there. Only people who have been set free will walk on it. 10 Those the LORD has saved will return to their land. They will sing as they enter the city of Zion. Joy that lasts forever will be like beautiful crowns on their heads. They will be filled with gladness and joy. Sorrow and sighing will be gone.
God, we wait in hope for you. You help us. You are like a shield that keeps us safe. Give us hearts that are joyful because of you; teach us to trust you, because you are holy and good. Lord, let your faithful love be with us. We put our hope in you. Bring us today into the joy of your life and your presence. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
