Formerly a worm
Crawling on the ground
Now inside cocoon
Change is coming soon

Inside chrysalis
Old dead ways cast off
New things being born
Hanging on this thorn

Wings unfolding light
Transforming even mind
Beauty now flies free
Releasing Heavenly Peace



God’s Word for You:

“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.

Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’
—the coyotes and the buzzards—
Because I provided water in the desert,
rivers through the sun-baked earth,

Drinking water for the people I chose,
the people I made especially for myself,
a people custom-made to praise me.”
(Isaiah 43:16-21 MSG)

My Prayer for You:

Dear Lord,

Thank you for making all things new, even us. Renew our minds, refresh our spirit, and restore our bodies as only You can, in Jesus Name.

The Message (MSG)
