Day 16 ~ Scripture Challenge

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.  For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth ; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. Isaiah 61: 10-11

This brings to mind what Mary said, “My spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior” and the reference to the bridegroom ties in with Psalms 19 “as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” I love the way the scriptures are so intertwined…so magnificent…kind of hard to express how it seems so all encompassing and powerful, yet at the same time so peaceful and comforting.
