The Glory of God

Today was a crazy day. I felt kind of blah- so I decided to go for a run on the beach- not a jog, a run.

As I started running-which is pretty much equivalent to my full on sprint– I thought, “Lord, are you real? I’m feeling disorientated and just kind of numb…and I’m about to start taking some steps of faith- which I thought I was really excited about, but now am getting really nervous about. You’re real, right?”

I’m so undeserving of His amazing grace and faithfulness- despite my lacking.

After running to the Holiday Inn–which I have no idea how far that is—not super far– I was winded. I stopped, walked over to a ledge by an abandoned lot…and just surveyed the beach while simultaneously jamming to Lecrae.

I didn’t get far before the sunset captivated me for the next 45 min…





Loved this guy. FSU retired prof. I asked him if he liked Tim Tebow. He said, “He’s okay, a little much for me.” I said I was a Tim Tebow fan. A little later he asked what I did- I said I worked for a Christian missions organization and he said, “I guess you must like Tim Tebow.” :) Yup.

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.” -Hebrews 1:1-4

I hope you’ll take some time to reflect on the glory of the Lord today.

Lord, would you speak to each of us. Help us to take time to be silent before you and simply know that You are God. May we rise early in the morning to meet with you, talk with you throughout the day, and enjoy you always knowing you are our Heavenly Father. You are radiant. I’m so in awe of You. Thank you for everything.

  1. Katie, I can so relate to being so excited about something God is calling you to and then all of a sudden having doubts and being like, Did I really hear God or did I make that up?

    Anyways, I miss you! I’m can’t wait to see you when I’m back in LA. I want to go to the beach with you and look at things.

    1. Me, you, beach, looking at things- definitely:) Can’t wait! In the meantime–look out Chicago! Tracy is bringing it:) Praying for you and your awesome endeavors!
