Good Gifts

Let me say it now, while everything is still a mess, and I am confused and worn and discouraged: God is good, and he gives good. This, too, he will turn to good. Watch and see the work of my God, all who may. This is not the end. I weep now, but I will wait for him, and he will make it beautiful. He is kind, and his love rests on me. He is faithful. He cannot deny himself.
The Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To provide for them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. (Isaiah61:1-3)
