follow the Lord.

As the rain and the snow 
come down from heaven, 
and do not return to it 
without watering the earth 
and making it bud and flourish, 
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

so is my word that goes out from my mouth: 
It will not return to me empty, 
but will accomplish what I desire 
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.


You will go out in joy 
and be led forth in peace; 
the mountains and hills 
will burst into song before you, 
and all the trees of the field 
will clap their hands.

Instead of the thornbush will grow the pine tree, 
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. 
This will be for the LORD’s renown, 
for an everlasting sign, 
which will not be destroyed.”

Isaiah 55:10-13

They sowed fields and planted vineyards
that yielded a fruitful harvest;

he blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased,
and he did not let their herds diminish.


Then their numbers decreased, and they were humbled
by oppression, calamity and sorrow;


he who pours contempt on nobles
made them wander in a trackless waste.


But he lifted the needy out of their affliction
and increased their families like flocks.


The upright see and rejoice,
but all the wicked shut their mouths.

Whoever is wise, let him heed these things
and consider the great love of the LORD.

Psalm 107:37-43
