A friend posted a text message from her husband on her blog. It said ‘Your life is colliding with God’s story and His glory.’

What a happy collision. Glory seems to be something we are made to experience. There is a glory present when kids run around in capes, for example. The funny thing about glory though is that it’s illusive. Sure there are glorious moments, but they fall short of the richness that is God’s glory.

God gives us glimpses of His glory in the expanse of the skies or the majesty of the mountains. His glory is revealed in the way he works in the lives of people. A person beyond hope is restored. A broken heart is mended. A physical healing. We as regular people, he calls to share in his glory. The hope and peace he gives we spread as if we twirl our invisible capes among those we live. Our movements and actions point to his glory and the wonder of it is that in this way he shares his glory with us.

“He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 2:14  New Living Translation ©2007)

So I couldn’t resist adding some songs to this post. One is an oldie but goodie by Rich Mullins…’There is such a thing as glory’. The second is ‘Your glory’ from All Sons & Daughters. Enjoy.
