Heavenly Father. Thank you for each day that I get to spend walking with you. Thank you for this wonderful world that you created for us. Thank you for our eyes, a miracle in themselves and obvious evidence of your loving creation. Thank you for the book of photographs of snowflakes that included a CD with over 500 photos that I can load into my computer to see the intricate details of symmetry in each snowflake. Thank you for placing evidence of your creation all around us. Thank you for the beauty that you created and for bits of your glory that are there for all to see. It is my birthday today, and so I thank you for the many truths that I have incorporated into a double acrostic* psalm that I wrote myself (see if you can identify each truth!):
Psalm (of Len)
All mighty are You O Lord
Awesome are the works of Your hands
Blessed is Your name in all the earth
Beauty flows wherever You go
Caring is Your heart for all men
Compassion is in Your eyes
Defender of the orphan and the widow
Delighting over Your every child
Eternal God, creator of all things
Encouraging those who trust in You
Fortress when we are weak
Father of Lights, we praise Your holy name
Glory is before us everywhere we look
Gracious are Your ways
Healer, helper, everything wonderful
Holy, holy, holy – God of heaven and earth
I am, You say, and so it is
Immanuel, God is with us this day
Joyful, just, glorious are You Lord
Jesus, Your name we lift on high
Keeper of Your promises
Kindness is ever on Your mind
Loving and laughing You listen to our stories
Life and light are Your gifts always
Majestic are the heavens, created just for us
Marvelous and amazing are Your deeds
Never forsaking us, You answer when we call
New, You made us, when You called us Your own
Orchestrator of miracles, unending they seem
Only good are Your plans for those who cling to You
Patiently You watch over us all the day and through the night
Powerful, all powerful and wonderful You are
Quick to respond to our calls for Your help
Quieting the storms with just a word
Refuge for the oppressed, shelter in times of need
Reveal more of Your glory to us, disclose bits more this day
Surely our hope is in You O Lord
Secure and safe are we on this journey with You
Teach us Your ways, show us Your truth
Triumphant let us walk with You.
Until our last breath we praise Your name
United in Christ, we encourage and support each other
Victory is ours, for we read the end of the book
Visit with us, meet with us, carry us as needed
Walk with us, run with us, sit with us today
Welcome, we welcome You. Come Lord, be near
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, unchanging in Your love
Young or old, Your mercy flows o’er us
Zion is Your mountain, set us up high with You
Zealous for Your holy name, we give the glory all to You.
For all mighty are You O Lord
And awesome are the works of Your hands.
Lord, I am here to lift Lindsey up to you this day. She knows that you love her as your daughter and she loves you too. I pray that this psalm that I wrote might inspire her to write one of her own and even set it to music. I pray that we can praise you in this way. And I give you the glory. The glory is yours. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
