as you survey your valley of dry bones

      The Lord took hold of me, and I was carried away by the Spirit of the Lord to a valley filled with bones. He led me around among the old, dry bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground. Then he asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become Living people again?”

“O Sovereign Lord, you alone know the answer to that.”

As you survey your valley of dry bones –
your broken dreams,
your hollow disappointments;

As you contemplate the parts of your life,
scattered and disjointed,

Hear the words of the Lord:

      “Speak to these bones and say, “Dry bones, listen to the words of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to breathe into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you and you will come to life.

Then you will know that I am the Lord.”
