It’s been two or three weeks?
I don’t remember because it feels like forever
Since I’ve linked arms with my friends who like to
Write on the wild side –unabashedly
Over at Lisa-Jo’s.
For five minutes time.
Without editing or backtracking
On one word alone:
Ordinary — that’s me. plain and simple. I’ve got it written all over me. Quite forgettable, really. If you’d find me for sale in a pawn shop, garage sale or even the mall, you’d pass right by. For my shell appears to be a dime a dozen.
Partially unglazed. A bit rough around the edges. Natural in color.
That’s what the enemy would like you and me to believe, anyway….
But I know the truth — you would need to tip me upside down to see what I’m really made of.
Friends, it’s in this upside down Kingdom of Grace that I make ordinary come to life.
You see, sin put its price tag on me. But Jesus…He paid for me in full.
The same Jesus who healed the sick, raised the dead, walked on water, calmed the storm. And these were done on His ordinary days. Yes, that’s who owns me.
He puts the Extra in Ordinary. Every time.
That’s my Jesus. I’m His. And He’s been working on me ever since to add more extra to my ordinary.
plain and simple.
I’ve got His Ordinary written all over me. And that’s more than enough for me.
Would you like to see what others thought of the prompt?
How about you, friend? How does He make you extraordinary? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
