Lately I've had a burden that seems to put me in a downtrodden state because my focus is the burden. Needing a lift I turned to a song by Gordon Mote. I am going to miss His glory that surrounds this burden if my perspective is self centered.
One thing for sure, my burden is not going to go away over night, in fact there is no guarantee it will ever go away. A friend sent me a great post yesterday containing three words that kept rattling around in my mind. Powerful words that lifted my spirit as I reverted back to them in the middle of my burden. "Make it count".
As I listen the to the words in the song, I begin to pray those three words combined with the title of the song. God, make it count, this burden that I carry, make it count and please don't let me miss your glory in the midst of it.
