How we see things is a matter of perspective, and we are each limited by the experiences our lives have brought us. We simply cannot be truly objective.
But our Maker sees it all, knows every experience, and sees us - each one - with absolute clarity.
The result is love and acceptance. Open yourself now to be seen clearly, and to be loved.next >
Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty, wrapped in light as with a garment. You stretch out the heavens like a tent, you set the beams of your chambers on the waters, you make the clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the wind, you make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers. You set the earth on its foundations, so that it shall never be shaken. You cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
Psalm 104:1-6next >
When we get dizzy and disoriented by the many changes in the world and in our lives, we can focus on the big picture of God’s good creation and God’s steady presence in the midst of all the changes around us and within us.
The beauty and goodness we see in the world is the purposeful work of our good and great Creator God. We are a part of this awesome creation. Because we are created in the image of God, our place in the sight of God is to reflect God’s goodness, honor, and majesty through our faithfulness and trust.
God steadies not only the earth, but also each of our lives, so that we will never be shaken.

When everything is shaken, you are the firm foundation on which I can build my life. Guide my steps, my thoughts, my words, and my actions to honor your purpose this day. Amen.next >
There is a place for you,
A place where you are always safe.
It is found wherever you are,
Always within sight of the God
Who loves you,
Cares for you,
Seeks the very best for you,
And watches you
All the way home.
