A whole bag of woes

Isaiah 5-8

It looks like I may miss church again tomorrow, and that makes me sad.  I really feel a difference in my spirit when I miss out on corporate worship.  I hope we’ll be able to worship together as a family…the Lord is here with me, and I can worship him with all my heart, right here, right now.

I wish I could travel back in time and hear Isaiah up close and personal.  He was so bold in his pronouncements…and to know what I know now, about the conception and birth of Jesus, when Isaiah predicted by the word of the Lord that God would send a sign…the virgin would be with child!  It took hundreds of years from the time God gave Isaiah these words until their fulfillment.

In the meantime, we live in a topsy turvy world, where moral values are seen as narrow-mindedness at best and criminal at worst.  In a way, I do fear what will become of life as we know it.  When I read the “woes” from Isaiah, I tremble a bit inside and pray even harder for our nation…for the people out there who are clueless, and for those who are hostile to the gospel…because a whole bag of woe is on the way for those who:

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.

    1. Dear daughter needs to see a doctor as soon as we can get her in. A spot of what we thought was eczema on her neck has become very red, swollen, and painful. She has very sensitive skin! Must be all those red-headed genes! 🙂
