Yearning for glory

I'm thirsty, seeking, longing for something I have not yet seen; waiting for the true glory of the Lord to descend. It is this yearning that leads me on.

For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us. Romans 8:22-23 NLT

I'm linking up with awesome artists that explore words in pictures. Stop by and explore with us!

Oh, this is just gorgeous. Word and picture. Perfectly illustrated. A favorite verse. I've been lurking around the three, but have yet to participate. You have inspired me...we'll see where it takes me next time around.

Such a beautiful photo. It takes me to our days in Sequoia National Park, California. God's glory is so rich in His mountains, sunsets, and sea.

Loved the visit,
Janis
