I am not well-acquainted with glory.
The biblical concept is foreign to me.
I know I should stand in awe, if I were to behold it but I don’t know what it looks like or what it feels like.
Moses begged to be shown his glory, while the Israelites cowered in fear and begged not to be near it.
David proclaims of God’s glory in the psalms with descriptive intimacy.
Paul describes the heavenlies with vivid detail.
The angels are constantly worshipping surrounding this glory, nonstop praise is the result.

Me? I have to remind myself. This earth gets foggy and icky. It gets busy if you are not careful. I want to get acquainted with His Glory.

The Christian life is not a life lived for God, but the life of God in us, through us, with us, and sometimes in spite of us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

—Mark Driscoll, Who Do You Think You Are? Finding Your True Identity in Christ. (via churchjanitor)

There was a period of time where I felt guilty for feeling relieved. Sometimes speaking up, being yourself, being honest; can cause distance between yourself and friends and family. It’s a hard thing, but sometimes a necessary thing, for joy to have room to enter, for creativity to flow, for personality to develop, to grow, to learn.

There is beauty in the letting go. In embracing change.

After the storm, the sunshine, the flowers, the wildlife. So often it is with the storms of life.
