Some "Strengthening" Exercises for the New Year

"The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, 
and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; 

It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, 
Even with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,

The excellence of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the glory of the Lord,
The excellency of our God.

Strengthen the weak hands,
And make firm the feeble knees.

Say to those who are fearful-hearted,
'Be strong, do not fear!

Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
With the recompense of God;
He will come and save you.'"
Isaiah 35:1-4

"Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down,
and the feeble knees,
and make straight paths for your feet,

so that what is lame may not be dislocated,
but rather be healed.

Pursue peace with all people,
and holiness, 

without which no one will see the Lord:
looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God;
lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble,
and by this many become defiled."
Hebrews 12:12-15

  2. Pam: Lovely pictures and appropriate verses. Thank you for sharing them.

    1. Thank you Quietspirit. Sometimes it is best to just let God do the talking for us! (Probably ALWAYS it is best, not just sometimes....) Happy New Year!
