Giving Glory through our Chaos

'So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.' 1 Corinthians 10:31

The alarm goes off. We hit the snooze button too many times and then jump out of bed in a hurry. From there it's breakfast on the go, traffic jams, meetings, after school activities, dinner, and bedtime routines. The list can be even more jampacked for some people.
All these things are pretty typical in our world, although, things that at first flance are not ministries to serve the Lord.

How is it then possible to give God glory in all you do?

Simply in understanding we are His creation and without Him, our life would not be what it is. The opportunities, blessings, joys, victories and even the defeats, heartaches, and disappointments that make up our life, would be non-existant.

Recognizing and acknowledging Him in our life is to glorify His name. One of the best ways to do so in a busy, self - centered world is displaying His grace.

'and tell the story of grace, in every move that you make.' is a line from Steven Curtis Chapman's song 'Everything you do.' and tells perfectly how every move we make should be in glorifying Him.

Do we show grace to our kids as they test our patience giving Him glory?
Does our tone of voice to our spouse tell of His grace?
Do we reflect His grace in a warm good morning towards co-workers instead of giving a tired scowl?
And do we quickly forgive the one cutting us off on the highway or pay them back with road rage?

Our life is filled with routines that seem un-important to His kingdom, but the truth is that every single aspect, as minute as it may seem has been orchestrated by Him. Therefore all glory belongs to Him alone.
