Not To Us

08 Jun

So many times in the world today, we expect acknowledgment for the things that we do.  It is a culture where personal achievement is important.  This is of course, a very broad observation of society; there are always exceptions.  We do things because they are good for us, which is not necessarily bad.  The motivation behind them and what we do with those achievements in life is what is important.

All the same, so we take advantage of everything we are given in the world.  So much is out there for us.  For me, taking in the nature and beauty put on the earth is so important.  For lots of people, these types of things are taken for granted.

Where are we giving all the glory and praise?  Do we appreciate that which is given to us? 

The cross before me the world behind
No turning back, raise the banner high
It’s not for me, it’s all for You

Let the heavens shake and split the sky
Let the people clap their hands and cry
It’s not for us, it’s all for You

[Chorus:]
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory

Our hearts unfold before Your throne
The only place for those who know
It’s not for us, It’s all for You

Send Your holy fire on this offering
Let our worship burn for the world to see
It’s not for us, It’s all for You

[Chorus]

The earth is shaking, the mountains shouting
It’s all for You
The waves are crashing, the sun is raging
It’s all for You
The universe spinning and singing
It’s all for You
The children dancing, dancing, dancing
It’s all for You, It’s all for You

My all for You
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory
My all for You
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory
My all for You
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory

To God’s name be the glory.  We tend to forget that in everything, we need to lift all to God.  Everything, absolutely everything for God.  Why?  You see, one little thing…He created everything.  God is the reason we are here.  Therefore, we need to give all back to Him.

Dear God, this is your child here.  Thank you for all you have done for me, for the loving protection that you have given me.  This whole world that you provided for us is so beautiful.  Help us to keep it beautiful.  May we all thank you and give you glory at all times.  May we give you that glory and praise even when we are not acknowledged for great things that we do.  Even more especially when we are acknowledged.  You are everything we need in life.  Thank you God, for your love.  Please continue to watch over me and those dear to me.  Place in our hearts a deep love and care.  Not to us, but to You be the glory.  Amen.
