Isaiah 43:5-7 MSG
So don’t be afraid: I am with you. I’ll round up all your scattered children, pull them in from east and west. I’ll send orders north and south: “Send them back. Return my sons from distant lands, my daughters from faraway places. I want them back, every last one who bears my name, every man, woman, and child whom I created for my glory, yes, personally formed and made each one.”
This work speaks to His protection of joy within us when brokenness and separation are the remnants with which we work. He is the Gatherer, the Guardian of Joy.
