Glorifying God

cb devo July 31“Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His name together.” Psalm 34:3 (NIV)

Home Economics was never my favorite class. In fact, I actually only made it through one semester. For some reason, cooking and sewing were foreign to me in my high school years. Maybe it had to do with the fact that my Mom rarely shared her kitchen. Regardless, I have grown to love cooking, but sewing is still on the back burner. I don’t even like the thought of sewing on a button, and I could never hem a pair of pants. Just the thought of a needle and thread sends me running in the opposite direction. Yet I would be the first to admit, I admire people who pick out fabric, a pattern and create something beautiful.

Amazing how God does the same thing. Created in His image, God picked us out and patterned our lives to convey the beauty of His glory. Like a single thread, He desires to weave all of our actions, words and thoughts into a tapestry of His glory that is beyond our imagination. We might look rough and messy on the flipside, but the One knitting our lives together will shine through for all the world to see. When we yield ourselves to the pattern of His love, our Designer label will draw others to admire His handiwork.

“Father, we magnify Your name, we praise the works of Your hands and we stand in awe of Your creativity. You alone are to be praised; use our lives to show the world how beautiful You truly are!”

For His Glory
