The Extraordinary Ordinary

Wake up, and thank God for the gift of today. Spend quiet time with God, and open your heart to develop a passion to make God’s will your deepest desire. Go to work, and be grateful you can make a contribution. Spend time with your family, and give praise to God for the ways they bless you. See suffering, and discern how you can make a difference. Struggle with a tough issue, and trust that God’s grace will help you end up in the right place. Gaze at the stars, and ponder the mystery and beauty of God’s creation. It’s a pretty simple routine every day you are alive. Nothing spectacular. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing awesome. But that’s just the point. It’s through the ordinary that you experience the extraordinary grace of God. So look for it. Expect it. And experience the extraordinary ordinary.
