What Death

“This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, ‘Follow Me’.”  John 21:19. NKJV

Even our deaths can bring Him glory.

Thank You, Lord, for making a way for us to glorify You, no matter what. And here is a simple poem . . .

Lord, You know I love You
as best as I can

am trying to feed Your sheep
and take care of your lambs

so oh what a comfort
that my death will have no sting

but be another opportunity
to glorify my King.

God bless you as you love Him and follow Him today!

Shining Before Men

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16 NKJV

I could get a little too caught up in shining before men so they see my good works.

Thank You, Lord, for the good works you give in which You are glorified, not me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Any light in me
is from You

so oh indeed
let it truly shine

in such a way that
You’re seen, not me

and Your Name
is glorified.

God bless you as your good works glorify Him today!

Glorifying God

“Offer to God thanksgiving,
And pay your vows to the Most High.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you and you shall glorify Me.”  Psalms 50:14-15

Whoever offers praise, glorifies Me;
and to him who orders his conduct aright
I will show the salvation of God.”  Psalms 50:23

If I want my life to glorify God, I need to praise Him.

Lord, we love You and are so grateful that something as simple as thanking You, glorifies You too.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Praising Way                                              images

May I offer thanksgiving
all the day through

singing praises
to the One and only You

so my life brings You glory
like I want it to

and Your salvation is seen
making  more hearts new.

 

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!
