Been reading the Bible.....Isaiah. I always struggle with the first part of Isaiah...think its long, and mean.....and not hopeful.....and then I got to chapter 11.....and found this little tidbit.
So, in this day.....where there is much stuff going on in our lives.... I wanted to say crap....but apparently we say that too much at our house (we found out yesterday, when the two year old said...."I don't want to eat this, its crap.") Anyway, as things seem to get you down, or you are struggling with relationships, or what God is doing, or when God will do it.....take hope from this.........

 Out of the stump of David’s family[a] will grow a shoot—yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
 He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay.
 He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited. The earth will shake at the force of his word, and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked.
 He will wear righteousness like a belt and truth like an undergarment.
 In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together; the leopard will lie down with the baby goat.
The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion, and a little child will lead them all.
 The cow will graze near the bear. The cub and the calf will lie down together.
The lion will eat hay like a cow. The baby will play safely near the hole of a cobra. Yes, a little child will put its hand in a nest of deadly snakes without harm.
 Nothing will hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain, for as the waters fill the sea,
so the earth will be filled with people who know the Lord.
