Daily verses - Freedom
Taking Scripture personally
The "Freedom Verses" were already introduced in the "Catching the Rhythm" section of the site. There the verses were exact quotations from the New Living Translation. Here the wording has been adjusted in three ways to help you take the verses personally:
1. Each verse includes a blank where you can insert your own name as you read it.
2. Each verse is reworded as if God is saying it to you directly. Sometimes a word or short phrase is added, like "Never forget . . ."
3. The wording of these verses is based on The Message, which uses an informal style that sounds more like spoken English than written English.
