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)
Back to Personalizing Scripture.
While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
