Shimmering Hope


Isaiah 18:3-5
New International Version (NIV)

3 All you people of the world,
you who live on the earth,
when a banner is raised on the mountains,
you will see it,
and when a trumpet sounds,
you will hear it.
4 This is what the Lord says to me:
“I will remain quiet and will look on from my dwelling place,
like shimmering heat in the sunshine,
like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
5 For, before the harvest, when the blossom is gone
and the flower becomes a ripening grape,
he will cut off the shoots with pruning knives,
and cut down and take away the spreading branches.

Shimmering Presence

Far off a Light shines
Shimmering with burning heat
It waits in patient power
With justice to meed

It glows against the darkness
With terrible fierce fire
Yet It is a beckon of mercy
Against Its holy ire

Its smoke is seen in daylight
A pillar of fire by night
Protection for the holy
Sinners flee in fright

Justice for the wicked
Mercy for the poor and lame
Healing in Its fury
YHWH is His name

His Son He gave
On the altar of sin
Once for all
And made us friends

Let praise ring through the heavens
Let joy overflow the earth
The Light is coming soon
And give us our new birth

You are the Maker of Light, who is far greater than light itself. You wait in patient holiness to render justice to all creation and set things right. Open our hearts and minds. Fill us with Your presence. Let the Light of Glory transform the darkness in our souls.

Thank You, Father for all things great and small. May they bring us close to You. Amen!
