“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” – Genesis 1:1
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” – Revelation 22:13
It begins with You, God, and it will end with You. You stood at the first, and You will be standing at the finish. Before I was, You were, and when it’s over, it will be You that I see, You that I stand before, You that I will worship.
I praise You, creator God, for all that Your hands have made, and I echo Your “it is good”. Beauty is from Your hand, poured out on us. Everywhere I look I can see Your creation shouting Your existence and Your goodness.
Colors, fragrance, brilliance, flashes of light, rolling thunderous sounds, the spray of salt water, the babble of every stream, stars that blaze across a midnight sky, the trumpeting of the elephant and the silent spinning of webs, and the people of every tribe and tongue – it’s all by You, through You and for You and the evidence of You.
Today, I will open my eyes to You. Creator. Good. First and Last and always. I worship You today.
