Monday, April 14, begins week 13—and the last week—of memorizing Isaiah 55.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall make a name for the LORD,
an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
Isaiah 55:13 (ESV)
Practice with first letters:
I o t t s c u t c;
i o t b s c u t m;
a i s m a n f t L,
a e s t s n b c o.
From The Message:
No more thistles, but giant sequoias,
no more thornbushes, but stately pines–
Monuments to me, to GOD,
living and lasting evidence of GOD.
