…and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, John 1:14 (ESV)
John tells us the people saw the Glory of Jesus that could only come from God the Father.
I once heard a former teacher say, “We have precious things happen in our lives that we can’t explain. These are things from God. Once we can explain them, they no longer seem as precious.” I sometimes feel this way when I hear of stories of what God is doing in the lives of His children.
Do we see God’s glory in our world today? Of course, we do. When we see a newborn baby’s smile, when we see a sunrise or a sunset, we witness God’s glory in ways that are so marvelous we can only stop and look in wonder.
When we see God working in the lives of those around us, we witness a special view of His glory for His children.
Some friends and I have what we call God moments in our lives. One year the VBS theme was nautical. The director called those moments “God sightings.” I am going to call those moments ‘Glory Sightings’ at least until the New Year begins.
I am taking a break to try to finish preparing our home for Christmas and with the hope of spending extra time with our son. I will return here on January 2, 2019. (That’s my plan.)
