Thrive Day 5

Day 5:

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.


Lectio Divina
This method of scripture reflection invites us into God’s presence to listen for His particular, word for us, at this particular moment in time.
  1. Read through the passage three times, more slowly each time.
    • First reading, listen to the overall passage.
    • Second reading, begin to listen to a specific word or phrase that
      jumps out to you.
    • Third reading, hone in on that word or phrase that jumps out more
      than the others.
  2. Allow a period of silence to reflect on that single word or short phrase.
    • What might God be trying to reveal to you through this passage/
      phrase/word? How might God be using it to shape you?
    • What is the meaning of the word? What comes to mind when you
      think of it? What is God communicating to you through that word?
    • How is God calling you to respond to what you just heard?
