In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
And all that was in them.
Holy Father God, You create ALL things. From the beginning until now, You, O Lord, have created it all. And will continue creating all. Forevermore.
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
You touch the mouth of someone and breathe WORDS through that lovely mouth – and we hear You, Father God.
The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue,
to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning,
wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.
In another, the hand of a man or woman or child is brushed by Your Mighty Hand, Lord, and that hand picks up a brush.
Or a pencil
Or a chalk
Or some wonderful tool
And wields it. For your glory…
On a canvas
On a wall
On a ceiling
On some beautiful thing
At Your will, Father. That hand draws or paints. And draws or paints such a glorious image that YOU are beheld in it. O glory!
“Now, son of man, take a block of clay, put it in front of you and draw the city of Jerusalem on it.
The hand of yet another picks up a pen…or a pencil…and as the pen is put to paper, Your hand guides the human hand as You, Father, inspire the words that appear on the page. The words? Yes, Lord, the words…
2 Then the Lord replied:
“Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.
3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Thank You, O Holy Father, for Your Precious Word. For Your creation. For Your Holy Son, Jesus. We praise You.
In Jesus name. Amen
