when the spirit is downcast, and the heart is broken,
the prophet has to come in the name of the lord
with words of comfort, light and healing.
there are many among us who need this word of comfort and hope. and we who have been saved and comforted, are called to bring this word, the living Word, to those in darkness and shadow of death, as the prophet so aptly calls the state of despair and depression.
let there be living streams where there was but a dry river-bed. let there be green grass and blossom where the land was parched and broken. this word of comfort is put in us to be passed on – let us allow it to go forth and heal the world.
