You very masterly brought me right into Isaiah's mind. I didn't like it to begin with ... but that was the point, I know. This is a wonderful piece of writing.

This made me shudder. The images are so stark and vivid and NECESSARY. What a masterful interpretation of Isaiah's calling. Your ending is perfect.

Wow!

I love the way you gave Isaiah a voice and a personality just by subtlties of syntax. I say "just," but it takes a tremendously talented writer to know that just a few words arranged just so can portray a personality.

Awesome. I want to be you when I grow up.

it's almost eerie...I just read Consumed by Fire in the beginner level and you two have alike minds! Your descriptions are intriguing.

Wow, this is so very powerful. My prayer is that God will teach me how to write with such power!

I could easily carry on about the great talent displayed here. But, with a piece this anointed, I just want to say, "Praise God"!
The heart of the writer here makes way for the heart of Him whom the writer loves. This is a masterful story told from the submitted heart of a servant who gives her very best because it is for God's glory. I can't say more. Praise God.

What an awesome piece of writing that grabbed my heart with the power of its message and its imagery! (It was also interesting to read another take on Isaiah 6! ;) ) The Spirit really spoke through your story! I desire for Him to be able to use my writing like that someday!
