Another beautiful day and beautiful way to start the day with Morning Prayer. I used the Mission St. Clare app again.
I was struck by Canticle 10 as we actually had a great discussion about these words and others like them in the Bible during my Ephesians study this week. I will leave you with them and encourage your comments.
Canticle 10 The Second Song of Isaiah
Isaiah 55:6-11 Quaerite Dominum
Seek the Lord while he wills to be found; *
call upon him when he draws near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways *
and the evil ones their thoughts;
And let them turn to the Lord,
and he will have compassion, *
and to our God, for he will richly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, *
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, *
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from the heavens *
and return not again, but water the earth,
Bringing forth life and giving growth, *
seed for sowing and bread for eating,
So is my word that goes forth from my mouth; *
it will not return to me empty;
But it will accomplish that which I have purposed, *
and prosper in that for which I sent it.
