Personalize Isaiah 43:15-19

Read the passage out loud or silently to yourself. Insert your name where there are blanks.

I am the Lord, your holy one, ________,
 Israel’s creator, your king!
The Lord says—who makes a way in the sea
 and a path in the mighty waters,
 who brings out chariot and horse,
 army and battalion;
 they will lie down together and will not rise;
 they will be extinguished, extinguished like a wick.
Don’t remember the prior things;
 don’t ponder ancient history.
Look! I’m doing a new thing;
 now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it, ___________?
I’m making a way in the desert,
 paths[a] in the wilderness.
- Isaiah 43:15-19 (Common English Bible)

Loving the Insights

"I lead a small group of about 12 women, and we were looking for a great Advent study. I had used While We Wait years ago and remembered how beautifully written it was.

I love focusing on the women in the genealogy in Matthew and our church’s Advent sermon series include the songs of Elizabeth, Mary, and Zechariah. So this study seemed just perfect for our 2019 Advent study.

Everyone is enjoying it so much and loving the insights that Mary Lou Redding offers for each character in her study. While We Wait has been a great study for us!"
