Lenten devotions: day 4

I believe in God the Father Almighty maker of the universe

In the beginning was God:

God: Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient formed our world.  After each achievement He “saw that it was good” until the last when he formed man.  Then He saw that all He had formed was “very good”.

In this devotion let us focus our thoughts on this creative, almighty God.

I believe that you created me and like the Psalmist,

When my bones were being formed, carefully put together in my mother’s womb, when I was growing there in secret, you knew that I was there— you saw me before I was born. The days allotted to me had all been recorded in your book, before any of them ever began.  Psalm 139:15-16.

As I work I will notice my body as it is able to move, grasp, smile, feel, respond, sing, dance and play.  My eyes will notice colour, shape, light and dark; my hands will feel rough along with smooth, will create as well as clean and remove stains; my ears will respond to different sounds, the bird singing, aeroplanes lifting or lowering as they take off or come into land, family talking, laughing, sharing and yes, arguing but bound by love; my nose will scent the aroma of flowers and dinner cooking and my tongue will taste the product.

Lord, today as I think about this beautiful world that you have created for us my I be ever grateful and thoughtful of my responsibility to live in it.  Remind me that I must share and not be wasteful; that I should see You in each object but most of all see Your handiwork in all people.  I offer up my sacrifice of praise to You 

Amen

Coram Deo
