Personalize Jeremiah 1:4-8

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

“Before I created you in the womb I knew you, _________;
   before you were born I set you apart;
   I made you a prophet to the nations.”
“Ah, Lord God,” I said, “I don’t know how to speak
   because I’m only a child.”
The Lord responded,
   “Don’t say, ‘I’m only a child, _________.’
   Where I send you, you must go;
   what I tell you, you must say.
Don’t be afraid of them,
   because I’m with you to rescue you, ________,”
   declares the Lord.
- Jeremiah 1:4-8 (Common English Bible)

Decades of Faithfulness

Pastor Harold Stinson was given The Upper Room as a child by his mother. He is now 71 years old and still reads the devotional guide every day but now in large print. He also hosts a daily prayer call and uses the scripture from the meditation as the basis for that call. 

Share the gift of faith by giving to the youth and young adult ministries of The Upper Room.
