About Facing Glory

I am learning that it takes time to see God's glory. It is always there, but when I write I tend to look for it more. And so I write this blog. It's simple, thoughtful and a glimpse of the journey I'm on. I enjoy hearing your ideas, so comment freely.
Love, Lindsay

Today

Thomas Moore : To live ordinary life artfully is to have this sensibility about the things in daily life, to live more intuitively and to be willing to surrender a measure of our rationality and control in return for gifts of the soul.

Let Him be your light Friday, August 28, 2009 |

Here's a YouTube video my sister shared with me today. Let your heart feel the love and life He has for you...


Lifehouse Everything Lyrics

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That's leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose...you're everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause you're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything,everything
You're all I want your all I need
You're everything, everything.
You're all I want you're all I need.
You're everything, everything
You're all I want you're all I need, you're everything, everything.


Rest in Him. Pursue Him. Fight to be with Him.

art therapy Thursday, August 27, 2009 |

Sometimes all you need is a little art therapy. One Sunday afternoon, some friends piled into the gameroom with all of the art supplies a childhood of creativity can accumulate. We were a little overzealous with the materials, but we sorted through...found our medium of choice and got to work. There is something about making something that you don't have to make. Finishing something you don't have to finish. I can't put my finger on it, but it's a good feeling.

This afternoon brought back memories of high school art class when we would feed off of each other in our creativity. It's easy to lose your momentum alone. It's easy to start getting logical and tell yourself that you're wasting time. But when we were all together, everyone was so interested in seeing the finished product that I couldn't help but finish.

So after this little adventure, I would encourage you to be creative. Maybe in a small way with a box of crayolas and a Disney coloring book. Or maybe you will get inspired to quit your day job and apply to art school like Pam Beesley. Either way, take a step in the 'don't have to' direction.

a time to love Monday, August 17, 2009 |

Days usually begin with questions. Who will be there? Do I have what I need to make such and such work? Did I study enough? Am I taking situation 'y' too seriously? Am I taking it seriously enough? Why does she act like that? Where is my traveling coffee mug? And there is one more question...


Is love alive?

1 john 4.7-12
Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God... God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sent His One and Only Son into the world so that we might live through Him. Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son ... If we love one another, God remains in us and His love is perfected in us.
