Behold, God is my salvation!

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he has also become my salvation.
Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
And in that day shall ye say: Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 
Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things; this is known in all the earth. 
Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion; for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee."

I came across this short chapter while reading during my Book of Mormon class today and wanted to share it. The writings of Isaiah (quoted by Nephi in this case) are not only true and powerful, but they are so beautiful! They are definitely worth their difficulty of reading. I can truly feel Isaiah's testimony of the Savior while reading them.

Thanks for your testimony. You strengthen me, and I know others are blessed by your faith. Another beautiful Isaiah thought: "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands, thy walls are continually before me . . .all flesh shall know that I, the Lord, am thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob" (1 Nephi 21: 16, 26). Love you more than you know!
