Glorify the LORD With Me

"Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt His name together. 
I sought the LORD and He answered me;
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will never be ashamed."
Psalm 34:3-5

His face was radiant, his eyes wet, “Not only did God forgive me, but then He said, ‘Rise and walk’.

Her face was radiant, her eyes wide, “I didn’t think God could use me, but He is”.

His face was radiant, his eyes full of wonder, “He has taken all my sin, and just wiped me clean”.

Oh, how our small group exalted the name of the LORD together that night. Stories of deliverance; lives lived in forgiveness. All His children, turning their faces upward in unison.

We were sitting in a tight circle and I thought, I will stand next to these people in heaven someday. We will stand, side by side, and exalt His name together, forever.

Shoulder to shoulder, our faces never covered with shame.
Shoulder to shoulder, our faces radiant in the light of his glory.
Shoulder to shoulder, delivered from all fears, crying out,  “Holy, Holy, Holy”.
Together, we will taste and see that the LORD is good!

Until that day, I stand next to them on earth, in this church, in this room, in this small, holy circle.
We  glorify the LORD.
We exalt His name together.
We turn our shameless, radiant faces upward and steep in this sweet foretaste of heaven.

We exalt His Name FOREVER.
