I woke up thinking about the green color of our swimming pool.
My husband, armed with sanitizing items for war,
is waging a fierce battle.
to see the “blue!”
“Good morning LORD!
Waking to thoughts of You.
Your not in the green,
Your in the blue!
Clear and Sparkling.
Bright as Light.
Into understanding sight.
Colors given one by one.
Gifts of rainbow from
Glorify Your Name in waves,
and clouds parade!”
I wondered, “What is the Hebrew definition for ‘blue’?”
An obscure idea of a “peeling off by concussion of sound”; a scale or shell (example a mussel) stemming from the unused root word “Shacal” which is the “roar of a lion”.
Blue – the roar of a lion.
The Lion of Judah
Could it be,
the woman with the “issue of blood,” seeing Jesus passing by,
heard the “roar of the blue” from the hem of His garment?
“The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the people…and tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments…and to put a cord of blue on the tassel of each corner.” Numbers 15:37-38 (ESV)
On hearing, the “scales” fell from her eyes to see,
And reaching out, she touched her Healing.
“For she said to herself, ‘If I only touch His garment, I shall be made well. But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter, your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:21-22
Hidden treasure in the word pictures of “Shacal” – #7826 Strong’s
Sheen – smile
Chet – full face
Lamed – Shepherd
“…Jesus turned around and saw her…”
The smile of the full face of the Shepherd
He said, “…daughter…”
I’m seeing her smile too,
In the Roar of the Blue!
The “blue” was from the cerulean mussel, the rare color was used to dye the tassels. This prayer shawl is an example of what the “woman” would have been reaching to touch on Jesus’s hem.
I wept like a baby when I purchased this in a shop on the Sea of Galilee.
May you be blessed today with healing and well-being under the blue!
