oh, for the glory

glory in the gift of family

glory in the gift of family

someone shared this thought with me yesterday…

“those that glorify themselves, glorify a little

those that glorify others, alot”

i wrote it on a post it note and put it on my desk.

i thought about it last night and tried to remember exactly how it went.

i found it this morning and had to share it with you.

isnt’ it great? doesn’t it make sense?

but wouldn’t you say it needs another line?

“those that glorify god, glorify everything”

spend today finding ways to glorify god. and things to glorify about him, to him, to others about him…

i’ll glorify god today by doing my best at work. by loving my family. by preparing my child for camp. by speaking kindness to those i encounter. i’m praying for even-temper and patience to help achieve these goals.

i’ll also disappoint him today, its inevitable, but he will know that it is not my hearts desire. he will forgive me because that’s what he does, but i will strive to glorify him today…

will you? and how?

Ephesians 1:15
That’s why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn’t stop thanking God for you—every time I prayed, I’d think of you and give thanks. But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!
