Show Me Your Glory

Creation declares the glory of the Lord. 

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:20

His handiwork is on display daily. From the menacing storm clouds that consume the sky to drops of rain that water the earth. From the sun in the sky to the stars that twinkle in the night. 

We don't need to visit the Louvre in Paris to see beautiful art. We can step outside and see the Master artist show us the beauty of a sunrise and sunset. The awesomeness of lightening bolts striking the ground. 

His creation is beautiful but there is something even better. We can see His glory as we leaf through the pages of His holy word. We see the beauty of Christ from the Old Testament all the way to the New Testament. When we ask God to show us His glory, we only need to open His book. 

We need to plant our faces in His word. Our feet need to stand firm on the Rock. Our hands needsto dig deeper into the depths of the scriptures. 

But this isn't always easy. There are seasons of plenty and seasons of droughts in the time we spend with Him.  Life can and will get busy. But we need our Saviour. We need to cling to Him because He is our joy and praise. 

It takes the discipline of an athlete, the patience of a farmer, and the courage of a soldier. 

Friends, reading blogs and books about God are good. We are encouraged when we know someone understands. We are strengthened by others words to continue to press on. But the best thing is spending time with Him.

That quiet time when it is just you and the Saviour. Your tears may bleed into the pages from joy or sorrow but He is wiping them away. That quiet time where you can here the gentle whisper of the Lord saying, "Be still, and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10a

Thank you to all the brave men and women in Canada and the USA who served and continue to serve. 


  1. <3 I'm so thankful God is such a creative God. He made such beauty for us! You're so right, though, that His word is even more beautiful!

  2. Yes, I love being outside just to see it and marvel at how awesome He is.
