THE JOY OF SALVATION

”There is a joy, welling up, like rivers, unstoppable!Beautiful and lifegiving rivers. This beautiful gift of salvation. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! My hope, my love, my peace.”

”Look! God—yes God—is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid.
For the Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”

You will draw water joyfully from the wells of salvation.”/Isaiah 12

”Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!”Philippians 4

”I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in
Me should not abide in darkness.”/John 12:46

Summer breeze

He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.” /Psalms 147:18

”My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.

The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.

Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
/Song of Songs 2:10-13

”You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;
    let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
    let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it;
    I, the Lord, have created it.”
/Isaiah 45:8

”Your love is like a warm breeze.
The warmth of your breath is melting my fear away.

Your sun, your love, gently unfolds my so tightly wrapped up defense.
Like heavy chains falling off, one by one.

Now I’m free. Bursting into summer. Blossoming.
