Let every valley be lifted up ...

... the word of God came to John, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness. And he came into all the district around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins; as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:

A voice is calling,
"Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness;
make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
Let every valley be lifted up,
And every mountain and hill be made low;
And let the rough ground become a plain,
And the rugged terrain a broad valley;
Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed,
And all flesh will see it together;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken."

Luke 3:2-6 & Isaiah 40:3-5

It is amazing to remember that Half Dome is a true picture of a valley being lifted up - as the other half is now in the valley floor. Thanks for the inspiration of how God Moves.
