Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; can’t you see it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
A Messy Prayer Activity to start 2022
As you turn your calendar from December 2021 to January 2022, take a few moments to learn and then teach the ASL signs for the bold words that are below. This website allows you to search for words and watch the sign. You could also make up your own motions. ***
Forget the former things; do not remember the past.
See I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up
Can’t you see it?
I (God) am making a way (path) in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
*** From A New Beginning Messy Session
God we are at the start of something new. Thank you for making a way for us even through the wild and messy places in our life this past year. We thank you for all we have learned in 2021. Open us to what is to come in 2022. May we look for the new things You are doing in our lives. Help us remember that You are with us at ALL times. Guide us into this New Year. AMEN.
