“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” Revelation 4:11
“We’re conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.” Author unknown.
Most of the time, our lives consist of ordinary moments and ordinary days. The older I get, the more I love the simpler things in life. I’ve come to appreciate more fully quiet moments of reflection, uplifting conversations with family and friends, time with little children who see the world with such joy, and my time with Jesus.
Each day is a gift. With our focus on God, His creation, and others, we cannot help but see our day(s) through the lens of His love. Those ordinary moments will begin to take on a different meaning. Our days will be brighter and our burdens will be lighter as we recognize the One who makes each day possible. It is He who lavishes His love on us, turning our ordinary days into extraordinary moments of joy and peace.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, only You can help us take our ordinary days and make them extraordinary. Give us the strength and courage to make each day count for You. Help us to honor You in all of our ways. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
