For Anyone Wishing Their Life Was Less Ordinary

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 had an ordinary day. 


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.


Perhaps it’s God’s grace that some days are just ordinary. (<- click here to tweet this)


What ordinary thing did you do today that you saw God in? Have you thanked him for it?
