God’s Glory & Roasted Peach Pie

2 Corinthians 3:18 (icb)

Our faces, then, are not covered. We all show the Lord’s glory, and we are being changed to be like him. This change in us bring more and more glory. And it comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

It sounds counterproductive, but one of the best things we can do as Christians is acknowledge, accept, and be transparent with our flaws. We’re all walking around trying everything we can to hide and cover-up the areas that we still have room to grow in, but one of the greatest ways to glorify God and the work He’s doing in you is to highlight the transformations in your life.

Accepting Jesus isn’t a magic switch that changes everything in an instant. Becoming like Him is a process that God uses our entire lives to complete. In the mean time, we’re all on a journey of growth; a journey that we’re only making progress on because of God’s love, grace, leadership, and commitment to us.

I’ve worked in the fitness industry for years. I document my progress with photos all the time – #selfiequeen – and I often share them on Instagram. Posting a “current” photo shows people where I’m at physically right now, but posting a transformation photo shows them how far I’ve come. Without seeing the beginning of the journey, they could never understand how much has changed. The inspiration is in the transformation.

Truthfully, I often feel guilty for the chaos and shambles that make up my life most days. I’m a Christian; I say that I love Jesus! Should I still need rescued this often? Should I still be this confused about literally everything? YAS – with an A. This world is broken; you and I are broken without the help of Jesus. To think that I shouldn’t need rescued by Him daily is only pride talking. No matter how hard I work to do good, I don’t “got this”. I need Him and every time He rescues me from yet another worldly crisis, I’m given an opportunity to use my humanness to glorify Him.

As Christians, we have a responsibility to stop pretending that we crossed over to the other side of sin the moment we accepted Jesus. It’s okay to wish that you had – I wish I was sin-free and problem free all the time – but the truth is that we’re not perfect because we’re believers. We’re made perfect because He’s perfect. All of those poor choices, the less than ideal circumstances, the “how did I get here” moments; those are the first half of your transformation story. God’s using you – the good, the bad, the ugly – for His glory.

Sometimes, we do really incredible things to showcase the glory of God. But other times, the contrast between what we deserve and what we’re given, or where we started and where we’re going, is the billboard for His glory. Wherever you’re at, whatever you’re doing – be all there; openly, honestly, authentically. You’re highs and lows, successes and failures, and rights and wrongs can be – will be – used for your good and His glory.

Write

What are you currently struggling with, working through, or walking through that can be used to glorify God? What prevents you from sharing those things with others? How can you start to use your current space and place to begin preparing your transformation story?

Pray

For the courage to allow God to showcase His good works through your story.

Tips & Tools

Be sure to remove the seed and all of the hard center from the peach. I scooped the center out using a simple kitchen spoon.  There will be leftover cottage cheese, feel free to eat this on the side since it won’t all fit in the center of the peaches.
