The Glory Gap By Joni Eareckson Tada

Suns rays bursting through the clouds

 

Have you ever wondered how you might bring glory to God in your everyday routines? Routines that, well… can be stressful or difficult? Well, there is a way. Think about it: there’s a wide gap between what you would naturally and instinctively do (like complain or whine about the routines) and what you do by His grace (like biting your tongue from grumbling). And friend, that wide gap is the glory of God. That gap, that “difference” between complaining and choosing not to complain makes God look great! And our Savior takes note; He marks that gap down on our eternal account. And one day? Romans chapter 8 says it best. “Our present sufferings aren’t worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” So join me in tackling our routine jobs with an eye to that wide, wonderful gap of God’s glory.
