Well, it was a day of being reminded that we live for God's glory. What matters is that Jesus would be glorified in all we say and do - each day - each moment of each day. God seemed to assure me of something David and I discussed a long time ago. Jesus is David's first love. That means that David is with his first love. How wonderful it is to remember how joy filled David is right now - literally basking in God's glory - seeing His face. I can say that David glorified God with each day of his battle. He truly lived for God's glory, not his own. And, that will continue to be my goal.
As I drove to Harvest this morning, to enjoy Ellen in the choir, God directed me to see a good friend, Sue, and her family, driving to Harvest. So I followed them and was blessed to sit with them. God surrounds us with His amazing people. He cares so much for each of us - loves us so much more than we could imagine.
Can you feel His love? Can you enjoy it?
I see His glory in faces singing out to Him in praise - many of them hurting hearts, yet smiling faces because they are bringing glory to God, not themselves.
May He surround you with His amazing people - and may you bask in the radiance of His glory which seems to splash on me when I worship Him. And, then, when He splashes His glory on you, may you take it to light up anywhere in your world that may be dark.
For Jesus' Glory, Mary
