Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)
"Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."
adapted from Isaiah 51:3 (NIV)
The LORD will surely comfort [me]
and will look with compassion on all [my] ruins;
he will make [my] deserts like Eden,
[my] wastelands like the garden of the LORD.
Joy and gladness will be found in [me],
thanksgiving and the sound of singing.
