Isaiah 40:10-11,21-31
The Greatness of God

10 Behold, the Lord God comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young.

21 Do you not know? Do you not hear?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
23 who brings princes to nothing,
and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.
24 Scarcely are they planted, scarcely sown,
scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth,
when he blows on them, and they wither,
and the tempest carries them off like stubble.
25 To whom then will you compare me,
that I should be like him? says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes on high and see:
who created these?
He who brings out their host by number,
calling them all by name;
by the greatness of his might
and because he is strong in power,
not one is missing.
27 Why do you say, O Jacob,
and speak, O Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord,
and my right is disregarded by my God”?
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.

“O Keep me in The Nest of You”…a worship poem from LWillows

KeepMeNestWillows
O keep me in the nest of You
Don’t wake me ‘till the morning dew
Lest all might break the silence of
This sacred time in love’s sweet pew.

Here amidst sweet nature’s rest
I curl, entwine within your nest
Carried, protected, betrothed and Thine
My soul will keep in all Love’s Divine.

“From Love’s Leading Through”…from LWillows

LoveLeadingThroughWllows
When I give my hands
they open to you,
with palms open forward
from Love’s leading through.

Etched in clay stirrings
with all of life’s due,
carved into bowls of
my hearts upturned view.

When love pours in season
from old and new reap,
we need no new reason
to linger nor weep.

Cup the love’s joy
and take the hands gift,
for here is the palm
that sends love as life’s lift.

When all give their hands
they open to be,
a new season forward
from Love’s leading through.
