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)
