Day 5 – September 5
“Here is your God, he comes with vindication; with divine recompense he comes to save you.” – Isaiah 35:4-7a
I think my deepest thoughts right now are ones that just parse the readings into small fragments. Maybe that is how my brain works best? Instead of all the words I can only cling to a few. Otherwise I may miss the message, the point, the whole reason.
I know most people’s take away from that reading would be the part about the eyes of the blind being opened, the ears of the deaf cleared, and tongue of the mute sing — especially since the Gospel reading is Mark 7:31-37 about Jesus healing a deaf man.
So okay there are obviously several messages, points, reasons of/in the reading — but the one that spoke to my heart today was that snippet; further still; “Here is your God. He comes to save you.”
