“The high mountains are for the wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the shephanim.  He made the moon for the seasons; the sun knows the place of its setting.”  (Psalm 104:18-19)


Look at the seasons.  See the ways in which the Lord provides for all that He has created.  Everything has order.  The Lord has a purpose in all things.  Come into the Lord’s presence and know that He has purpose for you as well.  The goodness of the Lord shows forth in all that He has created.  In Him is life and that life is provided for in His goodness.  He who watches over the goats in the mountains will watch over you.

Lord, You know the plans You have made for all of Your creatures.  You have marvelously made all that exists.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way of understanding that I would see the world around me with wisdom.  Help me now and always to look to You and see the goodness of the work of Your hands.  Lift me up to be in Your presence now and forever that I would walk humbly in Your ways.

Holy Spirit, open my eyes to see and my mind to understand that all is needed has already been provided for.  Lead me in the way of thanksgiving that I would rejoice in all the goodness that is present.  Lead me through the evil that is around me to know that Your goodness prevails.  Help me now and always to see in You the hope of glory and the way of everlasting life.  Amen.
