Isaiah 59:19 So those in the west shall fear the name of the LORD, and those in the east, his glory; for he will come like a pent-up stream that the wind of the LORD drives on.
Some years before visiting Alaska, I was in Marco Island, Florida. I learned of Bedell’s work there among the Seminole and Mikasuki people and the great reverence she held for the Everglades. The Mikasuki tribe of Florida gave Bedell the name Inkoshopie (woman who prays). Harriet Bedell lived to be ninety-four and never stopped working for Jesus—she never stopped riding “that pent-up stream that the wind of the Lord drives on.” May we do the same.
MOVING FORWARD: Spend some significant time reading along with Isaiah today.
