The wonder of creation

Lord, you have done so many things! You made them all so wisely! The earth is full of your creations! ~ Psalm 104:24 (CEB)

And why do you worry about clothes? Notice how the lilies in the field grow. They don’t wear themselves out with work, and they don’t spin cloth. But I say to you that even Solomon in all of his splendor wasn’t dressed like one of these. ~ Matthew 6:28-29 (CEB)

The wonder in creation points us back to the wisdom and faithfulness of God the creator.
God, you are such a wonderful and thorough creator. Nothing and no one escapes your attention. I, however, am blind to the wonder. Help me to notice what gets lost to my attention. Show me again the wonders of creation so that I can more fully appreciate the wonder of you, the creator. I'm going to set aside my worries and lose myself in the splendor of your creation. Amen.
