About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Today

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

A great mystery


This morning I got stuck in traffic. Not because there was a wreck but because I made a wrong turn. Yep, I make this trip very frequently and I made a wrong turn. But you know, I'm glad I made the mistake because it gave me an extra 30 minutes in the car to just think and sing along with KSBJ and find peace for today. I've been praying for refreshment these past few days as I've just felt worn down. You would think that getting stuck in traffic would wear me down more, but it ended up being a source of great joy.

Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning;
For I trust in You;
Teach me the way in which I should walk;
For to you I lift up my soul. -Psalm 142:8


I found a minute before class started to read todays posting from My Utmost for His Highest and good old Oswald reminded me of how really deep and rich is the relationship I can know in God.
Forgiveness doesn’t merely mean that I am saved from hell and have been made ready for heaven (no one would accept forgiveness on that level). Forgiveness means that I am forgiven into a newly created relationship which identifies me with God in Christ. The miracle of redemption is that God turns me, the unholy one, into the standard of Himself, the Holy One. He does this by putting into me a new nature, the nature of Jesus Christ.

The bottom line is...I'm nothing without Christ. I mean I would be something I suppose, but I would be an unhappy wreck. God's spirit is beautiful and somehow my relationship with Him constantly refreshes my heart. I suppose it's similar to how a close friendship can restore your joy. I still don't understand, that's why it's a great mystery.

Love you friends.
