This is the title of of song that has spoken to me so loudly lately. It is referring to not missing the glory and power of God in everyday. It says
"In the view from the mountains there’s a story to be told
In the crashing of the ocean there’s a power that no man can ever hold
All the stars in the Heavens decorate your handy work
Like a mighty choir we come to celebrate your worth
Don't let me miss the glory don't let me miss the the praise
all creation is singing to the honor of your name
Don't let me miss the wonder don't let me miss the grand design
in the lightning and the thunder, Lord open up my eyes,
don't let me miss the glory.
In the cry of a baby in the laughter of love
In the dance of the faithful you will see the greatness of our God above
In the prayer of the righteous in the beauty of your grace
In the brand new morning mercy
all your memory of my sin has been erased
Don't let me miss the glory!"
In the busyness of life it can be so easy to run through each day without even stopping to see God and He is there in everything if we just open our eyes, slow down and look. This especially hits home when I think of my kids and how they are growing so fast and I miss so much because of the busyness of life. I pray that God will help me to slow down and see my children each day for what they are, A glorious gift from God!! Everyday they amaze me at all that they do and who they are becoming, Please Lord don't let me miss the glory!!
