Glory to God and
Peace toward men.

 

Isn’t it funny how we spend most of our lives trying to reverse the order?

 

We glorify man and expect God to be at peace with our action.

 

We garner glory for beauty, creativity, wisdom, and skill
— all gifts given to us by heaven’s grace.

 

We struggle between a lack of confidence and an excess of pride;
Too little personality and too much knowledge.
Aggression, digression, oppression and depression.

 

In hindsight, our place in the limelight has caused little delight —
just a much increased appetite.

 

The only glory in our story is our return to His order.

 

Glory to God and
Peace toward men.

 

As we stand in the Light,
Reflecting light so all can see,
His Name is glorified.
His Fame is revealed.
His Flame is ignited.

 

And when I agree with His way,
I find that I’m filled with the peace
That surpasses all my understanding —
Known on earth among those “with whom He is pleased.” (Luke 2:14).
