Glimpses: Listen: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: Romans 8:18

“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us.”

How often do we purposely look for glimpses of glory here and now?

When our days are overflowing with busyness, stress, crisis, and suffering we instinctively cry out in prayer for hope and healing. But do we remember to watch for the fragments of light that will break through the darkness.

Or when dullness and drudgery weary us emotionally, affecting all our relationships and creativity, do we submit? And allow discomfort, irritations, and glitches to build within us apathy and despair?

Watching for glory is not often on our daily to do list.

Our human sight is shallow in comparison to the Lord’s ongoing power and life that we too often cannot see beyond the brokenness surrounding us. And yet.

He is always present. Here and now. Everyday. Especially in the darkness.

Lord, please forgive us our narrow perspective. Keep our hearts and vision focused fully on Your word and Your path. Show us how to see Your glimpses.


Psalm of Worship: Proverbs 8:17

“I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.”
