# Isaiah 54: Sing, O barren woman!

A week ago, Tamil Nadu’s topper who fought against NEET , chose death over life when her dreams were crushed and justice was denied.  Today, a journalist has been shot for speaking her mind.

Two women. Two lives. Two voices snuffed out this week.

One has been silenced forcefully, while the other has chosen to enter into it willingly.

And then I heard about the storm and the fire that threatens the land afar.

When will this change?

I silently asked.

And God reminded me of this song and the verse in Isaiah 54.

Chris Tomlin/ Bluetree
You’re the God of this city
You’re the King of these people
You’re the Lord of this nation
You are
You’re the Light in this darkness
You’re the Hope to the hopeless
You’re the Peace to the restless
You are
There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God
For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this city
Greater thing have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this city

When I went looking for the songwriter’s name I found the story behind the song. 

And I just began to sing out what I believed God was saying over that city. I just began to say that, you know, God is God of this city, he’s the king of these people, he’s the lord of this nation. And they don’t know that. They don’t know that.

And the song was born. The song came out of this love that started to play, a real minor downbeat loop. And it just majored up into this like anthem of the night. And greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city.        – Aaron Boyd of Bluetree

I say amen to this. Things are going to change. God reigns and He will raise up His sons and daughters to rebuild and restore the land.

My healer lives and He shall heal the land.
