Wasting our lives and glorifying God

Wasting our lives and glorifying God
Notice God's unutterable waste of saints, according to the judgment of the world. God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say - God intends me to be here because I am so useful. Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judges at all of where that is. ~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, August 10

On the Sixth Day of Christmas....

.....Six Geese A-laying.

Six days of Creation.  God the Creator and Sustainer of the world.  It boggles the mind and frustrates those without faith.  And He loved the world, so He gave.  And it boggles the soul and amazes even those with faith.

What boggles my mind and amazes my soul even more is that God shares His glory with us.  He lets us participate in creation.  Love-making becomes life-giving.

Shallah, my littlest niece,
made a big announcement on Christmas morning
by donning this shirt.
