A thought: Ordinary.
It’s not a special day; maybe today doesn’t hold a specific event or season. But, there is promise and potential in the ordinary. Jesus took ordinary fishermen, who ended up being the Messengers for others to be saved in Christ. Mary, a peasant girl, was chosen to be the
Mother of Jesus. Paul was a tent maker who is responsible for writing most of the New Testament, which continues to speak to our lives. All are ordinary people used by God in extraordinary ways. You and I, although unique, are ordinary. Get ready! God IS GOING to use you in an extraordinary way. On this day, you may very well discover greatness in the ordinary. Today, you may discover new possibilities in normal, regular circumstances.
Whatever your circumstances, be watchful how you can be used for spectacular things.
“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”
Happy extraordinary Thursday to you!
