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)

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!"
