Lord, Help Me Not Obscure Your Glory

"Grace is the pleasure of God to magnify the worth of God by giving sinners the right and power to delight in God without obscuring the glory of God." 

John Piper

"If you live gladly to make others glad in God, your life will be hard, your risks will be high, and your joy will be full."

John Piper

Dear Precious Lord,

Help me today to be a fragrant, joyful, and glad aroma of your love and grace. Help my children to see in me a joy that comes from you. Help me to give all glory to you. Help me not to build a kingdom where I am on the throne, but YOU are! Help me to find reasons to be thankful when I am tempted to sin. Help me to see reasons to be thankful to you for the child who sins against me. Help me to depend on your power through prayer to live out this joyful gladness in You.
