David Crowder Band has a new song out called "Glorious". Part of the lyrics say "You make everything glorious!" I quite often do not take that attitude with the mundane things of life. I tend to think it has to be the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, or the beauty of the clear night sky, or some life completely transformed - But wait - that would be everyone who has had a personal encounter with Christ and accepted His free gift of salvation!!!
However, in listening to the song, God helped me to see that folding clothes for our family, washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom - all those mundane and often, thankless jobs can be glorious when I do them for Him. My job at home and at work can only be considered glorious in His view - when I submit it all to Him! Really - it's not the chore or job that becomes glorious - it's me when I submit to His will and His way for my life. That is where the glory comes from for the job done. I want everything I do to be under His will. I do not want the glory to come to me. It can't anyway because the world looks at these things very differently. How can they know any better, until they see His glory, His mercy, His Grace showing through our lives. I want all the glory to be His. It is His already but I want everyone to know whose I am and why I serve!
"You make everything Glorious!" Thank you, Lord, for taking our meager offerings and making them glorious!
