The Glory Revealed

In the past few months I have watched my mom suffer a LOT! I can not imagine the pain that she is going through. I have started reading the bible more in the past couple weeks and stumbled upon this verse. It pretty much sums up my mom’s life right now!

“For I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us” -Romans 8:18

Glory: Splendor, magnificence, or honor. This is what Webster says of glory. My mom is a super hero; she has suffered every push and shove from this cancer, and she is still caring for our family! Praising God when she’s suffering; this is my mom’s glory!

Sometimes I feel like I’m the one suffering with all of this. I have been disappointed with things like the Disney trip! But then I think, “I am selfish to think I am the one suffering. My mom is suffering, and the glory is being revealed!” This verse has inspired me to live the rest of my life facing its trials head on. When I have struggles in my life I want the glory only attainable through God. When you surrender to his plan for your life and live it to the fullest, this is when the glory will be revealed.

This is Micalyn, and God has been faithful to me.

  9. My dearest Micalyn, here are a couple more verses I like to read & meditate on. Love and miss you all so much, keep taking care of your mom and never loose sight of that Revealing Glory!

    You armed me with strength for battle;
    you made my adversaries bow at my feet.
    Psalms 18:39

    When faced with an overwhelming situation, remember David. Put a little rock in your pocket and in the name of the Lord go out & face it!

    With your help I can advance against a troop;
    with my God I can scale a wall.
    Psalm 18:29

    When faced with threatening obstacles or situations, don’t pray for God to take them away, but ask Him to help you over it!

    O Lord, you have given me so very much. Thank you that it has not been too easy, but that I have had to put forth an effort to obtain it. I have been blessed in so many wonderful ways, and so I offer my thanks and my praise. Lord help me to be a craftsman at the trade of life. Let me live a life of quality, giving attention to the finer points of life, and always giving glory and honor to you. AMEN
