Sing praises to YHWH, for God has done gloriously; let this be known in all the earth.
~ Isaiah 12:
When we were children we used to groan at our mother’s comments while driving. “Isn’t that beautiful!” she would gush at the most mundane scenery. Even in the middle of eastern Montana where to our young eyes there was nothing.
And so we treat life, expecting to find the glorious only in specific places, with specific people, and specific times. We attempt to surround ourselves in just the right circumstances so that we can live gloriously. But glory is clever. It pops up when least expected. And at times, the more glorious experiences are those that we almost missed.
I didn’t expect to see this glorious scene in Kings Canyon in California. But as the sun set, there it was.
SHARE: Tell someone you love about a time when you saw something “glorious.” When you were surprised and amazed by something, whether it is really big like a mountain or really small like a mouse. Sometimes glory is surprising!
