Dutch translation / Nederlandse versie: Ik herinner me dat ik doorheen de hele dag moet adem halen
In these days of lockdown having so much less traffic that even the animals do not know any more where to find it, whilst more people having to stay at home or around their house went walking and perhaps (re)discovering nature.
Not far from sight,
Lies a forest I’ve never seen
The trees and the bushes
I take tiny steps
As I walk into the mist
To a world of enchantment
That I never knew could exist
The day has begun
With the sun wide awake
The endearing tweeting of birds
The dawn chorus they create
Giving a delectable forest scent
Squirrels scampering down trees
To try some of them
With their fur, snow white
With their tiny pink noses
They frolic in delight
I pick up a flower
With a silky white petal
It’s alluring fragrance
Leaves me in an Elysian fettle
Behind a lush tree
Of a juicy blue berry
Lies a jewel-clear river,
A world of faery
Not a speck of dust
Seen in the pristine blue tint
The scintillating sun kissed water
Giving out its gorgeous golden glint
It burbles all…

Out in this world without the aid
of a safety net,
the fear of failure has me
in a cold sweat.
I am taking baby steps in case
I might fall,
there are too many obstacles
always on call.
My breathing is unsteady
I don’t know whether I am ready
to take this risk.
I have lost count of the times
I’ve tried to break free
only to fail and end up
back on my knees.
But maybe this is the time
I will survive,
to venture out into the sunshine
and feel like I am alive.

Flowers are still growing,
birds are still singing
but a darkness has come
which will mean the end for some.
In just a short while
the world has lost its smile,
people forced into isolation
with the hope it may save their nation.
Politicians try to offer hope
to those finding it hard to cope,
mankind can be changed for good,
but only if the reality is understood.

For years people have doubted God His righteous position and have created themselves other gods.
At all times every human being has been given and is still been given the opportunity to make a personal choice. The only great problem with man is that most often they prefer to be partakers of the world instead of being partakers of Christ his world or to be Children of God.
- Charles Swindoll said we have a choice every day regarding attitude we will embrace from that day.
- Isaiah prophesied what attitude of Judah will be in reaction to judgment of God in scattering them among the nations. > Isaiah hopeful that Judah would eventually demonstrate right attitude by turning to God in repentance.
- submission = needed while in trouble
- perplexity = right attitude
- choice concerning attitude + course of action we adopt each day => positive attitude goes a long way to determining an eventful end.
- futile for anyone to fight his Maker.
Key verse: “LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.” Isaiah 26:16

Charles Swindoll once said, “The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace from that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string that we have and the string is attitude.”
In this prophetic song in our text about the latter days, Isaiah prophesied what the attitude of Judah will be in reaction to the judgment of God in scattering them among the nations. Judah had lived in sin and God had visited them with judgment, allowing their enemies to take them into captivity…
