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)

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.”
