As I look at my life I am AMAZED….
Amazed that God has granted me this AMAZING life.
As I sat yesterday at Shebas party I felt soooo blessed.
Blessed that we had THESE friends.
and even the FOOTBALL game that was on.
It is all a blessing…..something that was GIVEN to me by the GRACE of GOD.
Trust me…there were times in my life that my future looked NOTHING like this.
It wasn’t nearly as BEAUTIFUL or AMAZING.
And sometimes there are times when the EVERYDAY-NESS of this life can get to me.
It is ALOT of work……
AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL work.
But WORK…none the less.
And then I read this in my homeschool devotional this morning:
Mountaintop experiences don't happen every day, you'll find
that life is usually 80% ordinary and 20% extraordinary. Most of your
life will involve being faithful in the normal everyday routine, but
when God chooses, He will give something that changes your life
That really made me think.
life is supposed to be “everyday”.
You have to do those things so that when those “mountaintop experiences” do happen…you are prepared.
Prepared in a way that pleases God.
I want to live a life that GLORIFIES HIM…no matter WHAT I am doing.
Praising HIM while DOING the laundry.
Glorifying HIM while COOKING meals.
Lifting HIM up while TEACHING the kids.
Loving HIM while LOVING my husband.
BECAUSE…..Faithfully serving God in the ordinary makes you a candidate to serve God in the extraordinary.
"His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord" (Matthew 25:21).
