was He glorified today…?

Listening to a teacher… teaching lessons on what he sees as God’s school of discipleship… he comes to course 801…

The course he calls The Glory of God… a course that teaches…

At the end of every day, no matter what the loss, no matter what the hurt, no matter what the circumstance, no matter what my failure has been that day, I just ask one thing: Lord were You glorified today? All that matters to me is that You’re glorified, because You’re the Creator and I’m the creature, and I want to see You glorified and You exalted.

—Michael Wells, Living the Abiding Life

 So I ask… at the close of this day…

Lord… were You glorified today…?

I see where I obeyed easily in some places… others a struggle…

And I also see failure…
A course I need to continue… (or maybe even begin…)

I realize… to only be concerned about His glory… is to be wholly focused on Him…

My failure… and struggles… come from being more self-conscious… than Christ-conscious…

Lord… forgive me for my failures…
and lack of concern… for Your glory… over my comfort…
Thank You for Your patience… and Your teaching…
Grow me… in Your love… and grace… that I may glorify You…

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do,
do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV
