To wrap up my year's study of the book of Isaiah, there were some scriptures this week that were new to me. When the bible mentions something tender, it's so nice to think of those visuals in real life, knowing that the way it's meant to be - well, it's just the way it's meant to be. This scripture was talking about the blessings of a nation, but it's comparison is that of a young child with their mother.
“I will extend peace to her like a river,
and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm
and dandled on her knees." Isaiah 66:11
