Then he said, “Oh do not let the Lord be angry if I speak just once more.”

Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, do not fear! Here is your God….He will come to save you.”
So Abraham called that place “The Lord will provide” as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord3 it shall be provided.”
Fear not, for I have redeemed you,
I have called you by your name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame will not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
Isaiah 43: 1-3
So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time if we do not give up.
If you remove the yoke from among you, the pointing of the finger, the speaking of evil…, then your light shall arise in darkness and your gloom be like the noonday.

attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
