Sometimes I used to wonder; if Schroeder and I got divorced- but still cohabited, (aka "shacked up") while one or more of us abused illegal substances, had no job or way to support a family- if we'd magically get pregnant. It seems that's a recipe often used these days. And BAM! Out of no where Isaiah tells me this is true. Only he says it in more biblical terms. Jacob 22/Isaiah 54
"Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child; for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord- For a small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment, but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer"
See- he totally knew. It's a good thing the last half is there, or I just might have become as the desolate, noted above, totally saved me some serious repenting.
