Jan 19 - “Come to the Water” © artwork by Julie Lonneman.

All you who are thirsty, come to the water!

Seek the LORD while he may be found,
            call him while he is near.
Forsake your wicked ways and sinful devices.
Turn to the LORD for mercy;
            to our God, who is generous in forgiving.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
            nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
As high as the heavens are above the earth,
            so high are my ways above your ways
            and my thoughts above your thoughts.
For just as from the heavens the rain and snow come down
And do not return there till they have watered the earth,
            making it fertile and fruitful,
Giving seed to him who sows and bread to him who eats,
So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth;
It shall not return to me void, but shall do my will,
            achieving the end for which I sent it.
(Isaiah 55)
