For Anyone Wishing Their Life Was Less Ordinary
- 2013 Mar 15
Why is everyone hungry for more? "More, more," they say. "More, more."
I have God's more-than-enough, More joy in one ordinary day. Psalm 4:6-7 (MSG)

I woke up, took too long snoozing in bed, had to throw breakfast down and make it out the door on time for another work day.
Nothing special happened at work.
I turned up, I switched the computer on, I answered queries and problems. Then I went to gym. Came back sat in my office and answered the phone, approved a few things and then headed home.
Later, it was just the same old, same old in my quiet time. I didn’t quite focus on praying. My mind wasn’t really there when I read the scriptures. When I tried to journal it was more about me then about God.
And then I realized that’s okay.
Not every moment of our lives has to be extraordinary. Not every quiet time has to be a revelation.
Appreciation settled over me for the simple, beautiful day. And I realized that maybe this regular day was God’s extraordinary gift to me.
What ordinary thing did you do today that you saw God in? Have you thanked him for it?
