3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness, (see also Jeremiah 17:7-8)
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Isaiah 61:3

Amen Vicki.

It’s almost become clichΓ© but aspects of this truly were words fitly spoken and profoundly pertinent in my life - especially as they concern not just what we say but the WAY we say as per approx:

@ 11 mins 37 secs - 13 mins 19 secs

Were it not for Christ I would be constantly making:

Atonement for my tone
Sacrifices for my sarcasm
Grain offerings for gritted teeth

I stumble in many things, especially words (James 3:2) but through Christ can look forward to when God:

9 β€œβ€¦will restore to the peoples a pure language,
That they all may call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him with one accord.
