Seeming To Be Something

“But from those who seemed to be something – whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no man – for those who seemed to be something added nothing to me.”  Galatians 2:6

I’ve found that whenever I’ve seemed to be something, I’m the one who gets added to.

Lord, may all I seek to add to someone’s life be “yes” and “amen” to what You have placed there.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Math Problem

What can we add
to someone in Christ

someone blood bought
Spirit-filled, justified

someone sold out
in love with their King

not one itty
bitty thing.

They Glorified God

“But they were hearing only, ‘He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which he once tried to destroy’.”
“And they glorified God in me.”  Galatians 1:23-24

Those in Christ glorified God.  They knew Paul didn’t change by going to the gym and reading the latest self-help book.

Lord, we thank, praise, worship and glorify You, the One who makes all the difference in our lives.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Re-done

I check the mirror
because I don’t feel the same

You’ve brought about in me
an everlasting change

my heart, mind and soul
taken apart and re-done

all for the glory
of Christ the Risen Son.

I was thinking if any of you have a link you could share to your salvation story and wouldn’t mind sharing it here in the comments, it would be wonderful . . .and God glorifying. 🙂  Or, just share your story in the comments, that would work too! Thank you!
