Thru my soul; Isaiah 55, 20OCT
Thru my soul…
“My word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55
It’s a loop – love from God comes “THRU my soul” – that’s the lyric that touches me greatly when I sing “Loved by You” in praise band – one of my favorites… not only does the song speak of a healing flood (yup my soul had a Christmas flood come down from heaven) but it also sings of asking the Lord to “quiet me” (yeah I need that)… and the lyric “THRU my soul” means don’t ONLY deliver healing to me and stop there but push it THRU me… Use me for others… Yes we ask for healing but we are to ask the Lord to use us – shine HIS HOPE THRU our healing cracks of brokenness…
I can only guess that I was called into this renewed life – to speak, to write, to sing – because God loves me and continually places me into a position where God has asked me (forced me) to funnel HIS praise back out… not to boast in my “blarney stone-powered voice” but use my voice for HIS WORD… Always I am called to drop my agenda and pick up my cross instead…
We are to ask God to thread our hearts into HIS net – again and again I see that people are called to work HIS net/web designed to allow us to be supportive of each other – using HIS WORD to feed people on HOPE… We need to seek God to move us over the net strings – just like a bead on an abacus… Our ride thru life can be fueled more easily by the Holy Spirit when this string also acts like dental floss cleaning some of the old junk out of our hearts – purifying our souls, making us slide more freely…
Remember our joy of connecting with people – joy is a loop too…. “My word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55
It’s a loop… Thru our souls…
God is good…
God wants to send SMILES THRU our souls…
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
for an everlasting sign,
that will endure forever.”
“Loved By You” Paul Balouche
River flow from Your throne
From Your heart through my soul
Healing flood, God of peace
Speak Your word and quiet me
I was made to be loved by You
To be loved by You, to be loved by You, Jesus….
