Holiness vs. Hardness Towards God.
VerseVisions Art; Isaiah 59:16
“And He . . . wondered that there was no intercessor.” Isaiah 59:16.
“This painting was inspired by the moving devotions penned and published by Oswald Chambers in the early 1900’s. His powerful book, My Utmost for His Highest, continues to touch my life and draw me closer to Jesus. I hope that this art and verse do the same for you!” (Artist Mark Lawrence)
I know that at least a few people who read this blog on occasion are studying the Old Testament book of Isaiah through Bible Study Fellowship this year. The study has already prompted me to look for art in various media which has been inspired by Isaiah — this is an example of one piece I found on Flickr.com. I know you’ll not be surprised as I share these upon discovery — at least the ones that I like for some reason or another.
I’m also considering creating an iTunes Playlist for Isaiah. I’ve looked, but it does not seem that iTunes offers a way to collaborative build a Playlist and other social media options have not yet been discovered. I do know that I can create a Playlist in my own iTunes and then share it as an iMix for others to consider. Still, I really wanted this to be a group project. If anyone knows of a way to make it collaborative other than “hey, email or text or respond in comments if you want to suggest a song for the Playlist” I’d love to hear about it.
I’ve got a few songs that are simply haunting me (in the best possible way) that will be included. I may do this through the blog and Facebook combined to make it most accessible to the most people. I’ll let you know when there is a plan.
