Psalm 104:24 New Living Translation (NLT)
The longer I live the more aware I am that God, as Creator of life, has unique experiences with beauty and wisdom in mind for his creation. I have always appreciated my life, but lately I have been taking time to really soak in my surroundings in order to observe a bigger picture of God’s goodness. My desire for paying closer attention is so I can express a greater measure of gratitude to the Lord each day. Right now, I am listening to the melodies of the birds; they are so happy. I think they are expressing gratitude to their Creator with me. As I spend time with people, I am amazed at how different we all are and how special we become as we choose to operate in wisdom by giving praise, glory, and honor to God in one accord. He deserves our words of appreciation; our praise of gratitude as we experience life. Not everything that tries to enter into a day is good, but God who dwells with me each day…is! He has all the wisdom I need to discern the difference. Let all that I am praise the Lord!
O Lord, what a variety of things you have made!
In wisdom you have made them all.
The earth is full of your creatures.
Let all that I am praise the Lord!
Prayer: Lord, may I never take your wisdom or goodness for granted. Thank you for all you have created. Help me to see and experience your beauty and wisdom each day and then turn to praise you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
