What Glorifying God Looks Like…

The tendency is to look for the marvelous in our experience; we mistake the sense of the heroic for being heroes. It is one thing to go through a crisis grandly, but another thing to go through every day glorifying God when there is no witness, no limelight, no one paying the remotest attention to us. (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest)

So I realize that Oswald Chambers was not a stay-at-home mom, but I feel as though he was speaking directly to my life…. Maybe this theme is getting old around here, but seriously, I feel like it’s the goal of my life to learn how to shine for Jesus, even in the smallest, most insignificant, every-day little things.

There is a part of me that always seems to long for something “grand” and very important, but for now, glorifying God looks like patience when asked the millionth question of the day, or wiping up the hot chocolate that spilled and seemed to hit absolutely every piece of furniture in a 5 foot radius. It looks like answering Anika’s questions about how God answers prayer, and it looks like taking care of sick girlies and being house-bound for days on end.

What does “glorifying God” look like for you right now?

  1. So bang on, Kendra! Love Mr. Oswald Chambers…so much wisdom. So much perspective. (And always so very well said!). Thanks for sharing. Thanks for the reminder. For me, glorifying God right now looks like patient persistence…working on the tasks at hand (like finishing school) with a positive attitude and patient heart. Hope you have a wonderful weekend caring for and loving your beautiful girlies!

    • Thanks for sharing, Melissa! Hope your weekend is wonderful, as well, and that you will feel refreshed to start another week of school with the positive attitude and patient heart that you desire. 🙂
