His Wonderful Creation

You are the Lord’s wonderful creation,  

fashioned first with his heart  

and then with his hands.  

He rejoices over your talents, gifts,   

and abilities because he chose them   

just for you.  

He delights in the details of who you are—  

the color of your eyes,   

the curve of your smile—  

because he is the designer of each one.  

So every day remember  

the Lord loves you,  

he celebrates you,  

and he’s so glad you’re His.  

God, show me all the ways I reflect your personality, so that I can be confident of your love for me, and so that I can share that love in my own unique ways to the people in my life.  


Today’s Reading: Zephaniah 3:14-19.  

Sing, O daughter of Zion; 
    shout aloud, O Israel! 
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, 
    O daughter of Jerusalem! 
For the Lord will remove his hand of judgment 
    and will disperse the armies of your enemy. 
And the Lord himself, the King of Israel, 
    will live among you! 
At last your troubles will be over, 
    and you will never again fear disaster. 
On that day the announcement to Jerusalem will be, 
    “Cheer up, Zion! Don’t be afraid! 
For the Lord your God is living among you. 
    He is a mighty savior. 
He will take delight in you with gladness. 
    With his love, he will calm all your fears. 
    He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” 

“I will gather you who mourn for the appointed festivals; 
    you will be disgraced no more. 
And I will deal severely with all who have oppressed you. 
    I will save the weak and helpless ones; 
I will bring together 
    those who were chased away. 
I will give glory and fame to my former exiles, 
    wherever they have been mocked and shamed.
