Sing, O barren.

"Sing, O barren, break forth and cry aloud." - Isa 54.1

"But what can i sing about? I cannot talk about the present, and even the past looks full of barrenness. Ah! I can sing of Jesus Christ..... What is my barreness? It is the platform for His fruit-creating power. What is my desolation? It is the black-setting for the sapphire of His everlasting love. I will go in poverty, i will go in helplessness, i will go in all my shame and backsliding, i will tell Him that i am still His child, and in confidence in His faithful heart, even i, the barren one, will sing and cry aloud." - Spurgeon
