Each year that comes has joys and sorrows, trials, challenges and victories. My prayer is that as we close out each year that I will be more like Jesus than when we ushered it in.
While I was singing and worshiping to Justin Rizzo’s “Glory Will Cover the Earth,” I found it drew me easily into worship. I have loved this song ever since our son, a church worship leader, introduced it to us. Tonight as I sang and meditated on the words, this line struck me: “I will be to the glory of Your name.” That is my heart’s desire – that I would be to the glory of His name.
In the big things that will come across my path, I want to be to the glory of His Name.
In the little, mundane things that face me day in and day out – I want to be to the glory of His Name.
When this year closes, may that be true of me. That I have strived to live every moment IN HIS STRENGTH, BY HIS GRACE, TO HIS GLORY.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Lord, may it be so.
