In a hurting world of brokenness and uncertainty, it is time to give praise.
In our day to day lives when order quickly turns to chaos, it is time to give praise.
When a look at our life and that of others appears pretty on the outside but crumbling on the inside, it is time give praise.
When the morning dawn and the evening’s last light are the only sure thing in our day, it is time to give praise.

Heavenly Father ~
We praise you…
for loving us so well
for the creation that takes our breath away
for the children who reflect your love and share your name with others
for new mercies and forgiveness when mistakes fill our days
for the grace that fills in the cracks of our brokenness
for our highs and lows in which you are the balance
for creating us in your image
for showing us that redemption is naming the nameless and setting it free
for a world of diversity that will be knit together when we all claim you as the common thread
for giving us the gift of life through the selfless act of allowing your son Jesus to die for us.
These gifts and blessings weave us together as children of God. Our lives are made richer through your goodness and willingness to lovingly walk by our sides through the messy, the broken and hurting hearts. We praise you today and everyday that we are your children full of hope and knowledge that all things are made new through you.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10)
