Look around and what do you see? Does not the sun come up each morning? Is not the Lord giving all that is needed for life to continue? Has not the Lord provided for You? Yes and more. Awaken, and regardless what is happening around you, see that the Lord is always doing His part in the midst of every time and place. Give thanks to the Lord for He is good and provides always.
Teach me,O Lord, to sing to You with the work of my hands. Guide me in those gifts You have given to use them for You always. Lead me in the way I should go that I may go there. Open my eyes to see the beauty of the earth and all that is in it. Let my voice raise in song and my heart swell with praise of Your goodness to all. May others know that it is You that I praise, O Lord.
Lord and Savior, Jesus, You are leading the way for as many as come through You to the Father. Guide my thoughts and actions this day that I may see the goodness that is all around in spite of the battle of sin that still rages. Keep my heart in joy and away from lament, and lead me to sing a sing of praise this day through all that I do. Help me, O Lord, to walk as You would have me walk. Amen.
