Hope for all creation

The Lord pours out his goodness and compassion on all of his creation -- on everyone and everything. ~ Psalm 145:9 (ABP)

Creation itself will be freed from its slavery to decay and will get to participate in the same glorious freedom which God's children experience. ~ Romans 8:21 (ABP)

All creation is set free through Christ.
Lord, your compassion brings me hope. Sometimes I see only decay and destruction around me, but your loving mercy gives me a new vision. By the power of your Holy Spirit keep my eye on the prize this day; so that I may patiently and fruitfully await your coming again. Amen. (Daily Texts, Mount Carmel Ministries edition)
