There has been a recurring theme in my spiritual life lately:

God's glory.

So many times, we call on God when we need something. Our prayers consist of "God please grant me X" or "Lord I really need Y".

Yes, God wants us to bring our needs to him, but He is so much more than the good gifts that He gives us. His gifts are just the surface of his goodness.

God deserves glory for who He is as a person.

As creator of the universe.

As the breath of life.

As giver of abundant, undeserving grace.

As just and holy

As all powerful and all knowing

There are so many attributes of God that deserve eternal praise.

In his model of prayer, Jesus asks that God's kingdom come to earth as it is in heaven. Imagine that. Everyone always praising God for who he is. Not always focusing on what God can give to us, but what we can praise Him for.

These glorious attributes can be seen all throughout our lives--

In the gift of music- His beauty and emotion are shown

In the essentials of food and water- His role as provider is made apparent

In the sunrise- His majesty and creativity are displayed

In the waves of the ocean- His infinite grace and mercy that continue to wash over us

In our next prayers, let's spend some time praising God and giving Him the glory he deserves.

Recognize Him for what he is worth rather than just a request granter.


"Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." Matthew 6:10 ESV

"Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty" Psalm 104:1

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
