THE MOUNTAINS WILL BURST INTO SONG BEFORE YOU



Isaiah 55


6 Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

 
 
12 You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
    for an everlasting sign,
    that will endure forever.”
NIV 





This is Mt Rainer in Seattle WA. 
on a clear day.
It's that surprise mountain, 
now you see it, now you don't.  
It was certainly a surprise to me ...
while riding down this busy road...
and there it was bigger than life. 
It was kind of scary. 
I'm from CO
I'm used to mountains....
but this was unexpected...
because its not always visible. 
When it is this up close and personal, 
it's breathtakingly MAJESTIC!
