Anything but ordinary.
That seems to be the theme for our days.
From weird sickness to new moving to Africa to homeschooling on the road to coming back stateside for furlough to digging in to our faith deeper ways.
Our lives, my life seems to be anything but what it was before we started this missions journey.
God is teaching, moving and growing. I don’t always even have the words to write.
Some things seem so personal… too personal to share here. Yet, I do.
In the busyness of our lives, God is doing things in my heart.
I must rely completely on Him, draw strength from His word and walk daily in His power.
Anything else would not be enough.
Living out of the ordinary cries for more of God. Being satisfied with anything less wouldn’t be God’s full plan for my life.
After all, we never know how far we’ll go when we follow Him.
His plan is more than I ever imagined. Bigger than my young heart could have known when I first said yes to Jesus. Bigger than I have the strength or energy to accomplish.
Without Him, the extraordinary doesn’t happen.
This song perfectly speaks to the cry of my heart in these times.
The cry of my heart is for more of Him and that means walking out of the ordinary. Being willing to go out there where only He can take me.
Living a life that is anything but ordinary.
I’ve realized something over the years of our journey.
I won’t be satisfied with anything other than living in the extraordinary path of His great plan for our lives.
“We won’t be satisfied with anything ordinary. We won’t be satisfied at all.”
Whatever it takes. Whatever road we must walk. Whatever paths God will lead us on.
But I do know one thing.
Following God will take stepping out of the ordinary.
Walking where God leads. Doing what He asks. But, we will do it.
Are you willing to walk in the extraordinary?
