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)

“My husband’s grandmother, Nan, will be 92 this year. We talk to her every day. She is the reason I read The Upper Room daily devotional. For years, she has mailed these devotionals to every member of her family. Thank you, Upper Room, for working every day to contribute to so many lives.” Pass along the gift of faith; give a gift subscription.
