The ordinariness of our days tell the story of an extraordinary Lord!
If you’re like me, you might often miss how He weaves a tale of His amazing love and care for us. My heart yearns for something beyond the ordinary—something new, something different. But the voice within says not to let the glitz and glam rob me of the beauty of my reality. Yes my days are ordinary. I don’t hop on and off planes traveling to far away lands. My time is not filled chatting with socialites. And there is no endless supply of money that gives me the opportunity to spend with abandon.
I have no books written….nothing extraordinaire about me. Just ordinary me. But my ordinary silently tells the story of a faithful God.
The job I go to day after day….tells the story of His provision and favor.
The dishes that need washing…tells of His faithfulness in feeding me.
The ordinary text messages…tells how He place me on someone’s mind.
A typical walk around the neighborhood…tells of how He leads my feet along safe paths.
So many things we do day after day that are often taken for granted. Working, tending to home and/or raising a family is filled with a bunch of routines. Yet, don’t allow the routine of it all to dull your glimpses of an extraordinary God.
