a prayer for fresh hope & a new road

isaiah 43:16-21 (the message)

this is what god says,
the god who builds a road right through the ocean,
who carves a path through pounding waves,
the god who summons horses and chariots and armies—
they lie down and then can’t get up;
they’re snuffed out like so many candles:

“forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history.

be alert, be present. i’m about to do something brand-new.
it’s bursting out! don’t you see it? there it is!

i’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.”

today, i’ll be in an all day planning & strategy meeting with a church who is going through an incredible amount of change. i’ll be praying isaiah 43 all day as i lead and encourage this exceptional group through the transition.

i’m praying and believing that god will help us to be alert and present as we wait and hope for him to do something brand-new.  may his fresh love and grace bless you today.
