New Living Translation (NLT)
8 And yet, O Lord, you are our Father.
We are the clay, and you are the potter.
We all are formed by your hand.
There is a part of everyone
That makes us who we are
Running like a river
Into a reservoir
It’s what fills our hearts and minds up
And gives us our identity
Without it controlling who we are
There’d be no you or me
The “I” in me can be hard to see
Like a babe in bath water tossed
Sometimes we’re driven to please the world
While our true selves are often lost
Almighty God has created us
And given us gifts from up above
They make us who we truly are
If we use them in His love
So do your best to live for Him
And You will have no regret
He is that “I” in all of us
We never must forget

You have made us and gifted us with talents that make us, not only who we are, but You make us whole. Without You we are wandering in a lonesome wilderness without identity or comfort. Please enter everyone’s hearts and minds and help them blossom into the creations You intended.
Thank You, Lord for every kindness.
