“Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for His lovingkindness is
everlasting.  To Him who alone does great
wonders, for His lovingkindness is everlasting;” (Psalm 136:3-4)

Look around at the world and
what do you see?  Not the people first,
but the creation:  do you not marvel at
the creativity?  Can you not see the
great diversity?  Now look at the
people.  Do you not see great creativity
and diversity?  The Lord is marvelous for
He made all these.  Marvel at what the
Lord has done and praise Him.  To Him
alone belongs all praise and honor and glory.

Lord, I listen to what the world says and believe this is the truth of
all things.  I see only what I want to
see.  Help me to truly see with honest
eyes that I would marvel at all that You have made.  Guide me according to Your goodness to see
that in You alone is where honor and worship is due.  Lead me into Your presence that I may reside
with You all the days of my life.

Lord Jesus, You have come to lead
the way and to establish a faithful people who worship the Father in spirit and
in truth.  Guide me this day to live the
life which You intend for me to live. 
Guide me in the way I need to go that I may now and forever abide with
You and You with me.  Teach me to give
thanks and praise at all times and in all circumstances.  Amen.
