As Flint

Because the Sovereign LORD helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,
and I know I will not be put to shame.

Isaiah 50:7

I woke up thinking about setting my face as flint and singing about the love of Jesus.

I've been meditating on what it means to set my face as flint. Here are a 2 thoughts in no particular order and not fully formed.
-flint is a rock. It speaks of standing firm, being strong. Rocks weather the storms quite successfully.
-flint is used to make fire. When flint is stricken, it creates sparks....I'm still mulling this one over.

And in the meantime, I'm also mulling over these words:
"Your love is like the ocean,
I'm drowning in your love."
