Word Wednesday #76 | Link-up

"Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Father, glorify Thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." 
(John 12:27-28)

When we face temptations and testings, how often we pray for God to relieve our pain, to ease the fiery trail, to remove from us suffering. And, in doing so, our focus is funneled on our pain, our suffering, our misery, and never on God and whether or not He is glorified. Where is my focus--the pain, or the glory of God?

So very true!

"Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands." ~ Proverbs 14:1

Whenever the Lord brings this verse to mind (as He recently did), the question that often comes to mind is how do I as a daughter affect my family? Do I build them up with my words and actions or do I foolishly tear them down?

I have definitely had similar thoughts to that verse. Thanks for sharing, Kenzi!
