Show us your glory, Lord!
You have shown You might with an outstretched arm through the work of the cross. If nothing miraculous ever happens, Jesus Christ crucified and risen is enough.
But, Oh Lord, I want to see Your glory.
“Lord, I have heard of Your fame; I stand in awe of Your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known. ”
— Habakkuk 3:2
Give me eyes to see, ears to hear, a heart to perceive when You are wonderful.
From the tiny garden spider spinning her zig-zag web by the deck to the hummingbird who zooms past me in a second.
From the miracle of birth to the faces of my neighbors.
From the innocence of children to the wisdom of the elderly gained by trials and experience.
From the majesty of moon and one red star in the morning horizon to the sun setting each evening in pallet of unlimited color and uniqueness.
From Your daily provision as we sit at the table with food to eat to the cloud cover that gave me respite in the hot sun as I finished my work.
From the vast galaxies with stars unnumbered to the minuscule DNA that makes each and every one of us distinctive, unduplicated, and irreplaceable.
From the promises of Your word that we have seen come to pass to the prophetic future You alone will complete.
From the prayers You heard and answered in ways I could not have imagined to the questions I have asked that remain a mystery in this lifetime.
Oh Lord, we have seen Your glory. Be we want to see it again. Renew Your wonders in our day, in our time make them known to us.
Make my faith grow. Help me to believe You. Be strong in my mind and heart. Move mightily in me, your simple servant, however that might manifest.
Oh Lord, show me Your glory.
