Another Southwest flight from Dallas to Austin. It has been a busy week at the customer site SuperPages. As I often do, I opened my bible for some tranquil reading. As I was reading my bible, the Stewardess looked over at me as said; "Hey, that’s a good book!" I replied "Yes it is, it is THE good book". She smile and went on to tell me a story about her mother. She was watching TV with her Mom and decided to put a tape called "JESUS" in the VCR. They watched the movie in it's entirety, when it was over her Mom smiled and said "Well that’s good news" The Stewardess replied with "That’s why they call it The Good News".
I opened my bible randomly to Isaiah 61, the Chapter is titled "Good News for the Oppressed". This is a great example of the Lord's work living in and through us all.
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
for the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
and to proclaim that captives will be released
and prisoners will be freed
This verse is very close to my heart and always has been. I need to memorize it!
