God changes everything!

Isaiah 35

He transforms our sight and understanding

Then the eyes of the blind will be opened The ears of the deaf will be unstopped. They will see the glory of the Lord, The majesty of our God.

He transforms the heart and soul

Then the lame will leap like a deer, And the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. And the ransomed of the Lord will return And come with joyful shouting to Zion, With everlasting joy upon their heads.

He transforms the barren into fruitfulness

For waters will break forth in wilderness and the streams in the Arabah. The scorched land will become a pool and the thirsty ground springs of water.

He transforms

Our weariness,

Our fear,

Our pain,

Our loneliness,

Our discouragement,

Our disillusionment,

And our hurts

INTO JOY!

Encourage the exhausted and strengthen the feeble. Say to those with anxious heart. “Take courage,

fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance; the recompense of God will come, but He will save you.”

He transforms our wandering into a Highway of Holiness

The unclean will not travel on it

Fools will not wander on it

No lion or beast will be there

It will be for those who walk the way

The redeemed will walk there

They will find gladness and joy and sorrow and sighing will flee
