Growing in Resilience: Glory to You, based on Isaiah 55.6-9


Worship by Jun Jamosmos

Growing in Resilience
Based on Isaiah 55
Bonus Reflection: Glory to You, based on Isaiah 55:6-9, NRSV

Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake their way, and the unrighteous their thoughts; let them return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are 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.

Glory To You, O Lord Most High!
You await us with mercy
Mercy and abundant pardon
You are near
You are found

You send out your Word and it returns to you
A harvest of salvation and goodness

You send out your Word and it fulfills your desire
Joy and Peace for us and all creation

Glory To You, O Lord Most High!
Your thoughts are higher
Your ways are higher
Above and beyond
Grace upon grace

You alone are worthy of
our seeking
our turning
our trust and devotion
our celebration and song

Glory to You, O Lord Most High!
