19The sun will no more be your light by day,

nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you,

for the Lord will be your everlasting light,

and your God will be your glory.

and your moon will wane no more;

the Lord will be your everlasting light,

and your days of sorrow will end.

Little River Road, Smokey Mountains - “Speak through Me”


Just as the rain and the snow come down from the sky and don’t return there without watering the earth . . . so is my word that comes from my mouth; it does not return to me empty. Instead, it does what I want, and accomplishes what I intend.

Great Smokey Mountains - “Do You Not Know? Do You Not Hear?”


Do you not know? Do you not hear? 
Has it not been told you from the beginning? 
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? 
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, 
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; 
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, 
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; 
Who brings princes to nothing, 
and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.

Isaiah 40:21-23

Denali National Park, Alaska - “A Voice Cries in the Wilderness”

Isaiah 40:3-5

Bad Axe, Michigan - “There Shall Come Forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse”


And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

Crescent Beach, Florida - “In the Land of Deep Darkness a Light has Dawned”


Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan—

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

Shores Waterfront Park - “Heart of the People Moved as the Trees of the Woods Moved with the Wind”


Now it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to make war against it, but could not prevail against it. And it was told to the house of David, saying, “Syria’s forces are deployed in Ephraim.” So his heart and the heart of his people were moved as the trees of the woods are moved with the wind.

Isaiah 7:1-2

Commentary:  King Ahaz and his people react with fear instead of with trust in God. They are shaken and unstable in their hearts.

 In this, the people of Judah really are the people of Ahaz, not the people of the LORD. God was not shaken or unsettled by this threat. If the king of Judah and the people of Judah had put their trust in the LORD, they would have had the peace of God in this conflict.

Matanzas Inlet - “When You Pass Through the Waters”

But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Isaiah 43:1-2

American Mother’s Chapel, Colorado Springs - “Come Now”

Learn to do good; Seek justice, 
correct oppression; 
Bring justice to the fatherless, 
plead the widow’s cause. 

 Come now, let us reason together, 
says the Lord
though your sins are like scarlet, 
they shall be as white as snow; 
though they are red like crimson, 
they shall become like wool. 
 If you are willing and obedient, 
you shall eat the good of the land; 
 but if you refuse and rebel, 
you shall be eaten by the sword; 
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Isaiah 1:17-20
