God of all my days, I come to you with my hands lifted high and eyes wide open. I praise you for the gifts of yesterday and the surprises of tomorrow. In this moment, I am grateful for the blessings that surround me: streams of sunlight pouring through my window and a blanket to keep off the chill. I am thankful to hear you in the wind as it whistles through the courtyard. I delight in every melody you play.
Each bare branch on the tree, stretches to draw closer to your heavens. Every frozen blade of grass remembers the summer’s heat. You graciously fill my mind with memories of all the ways you have shown yourself to me. You urge me to seek the pictures you are painting of days to come…pictures filled with hope and promise. There is a day for each of your dreams to come true. Help me to be part of what you desire.
Thank you, Lord, for each day that you have created and each one you are planning to create for in you there is life. Guide me to be faithful as you are faithful to bring joy to each day. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
