I am so extraordinarily blessed by all of you who take the time to read, and to comment, on my blog. Thank you for your friendship! Due to recent events, I have lost many of my subscribers (still learning about the whole technological side!), and I need your help to get everyone back on!! If you have subscribed in the past, you are probably not getting updates. Please take a moment to resubscribe, and a second moment to pass it on to someone you feel would be blessed by this blog. My heart is on fire for those longing to see more of God in their life, and walk more freely in the HOW to do life with Him in a practical, daily, more inspired way!!
!!Thank you so much for your support!!
Isaiah 61:1-4 (Amplified Bible)
Exaltation of the Afflicted
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me
To bring good news to the humble and afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted,
To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives
And freedom to prisoners,
To proclaim a]the favorable year of the Lord,
b]And the day of vengeance and retribution of our God,
To comfort all who mourn,
To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following:
To give them a c]turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning],
The oil of joy instead of mourning,
The garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit.
So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God],
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins,
They will raise up and restore the former desolations;
And they will renew the ruined cities,
The desolations (deserted settlements) of many generations.
