Ordinary. Am I just an ordinary girl? Of course, so why is it that I don't want to feel ordinary?
My heart desires to be special. Unique. Individual. And of course I am that too. How can that be?
How is it that both can be so true? We are all special, unique and individual.
Yet, Jesus. My Lord and God. The Bible says he was ordinary. Well, at least he appeared ordinary. Yet He was divine. He was content to give up heaven and live on earth as an ordinary man. To save us from our sins. But I struggle with ordinary. With ordinary tasks. Ordinary life.
When I think about it, I am convinced that to earthly eyes there is much ordinary. Cooking, cleaning, little ones to watch, care for, grow up. But spiritually there is no ordinary. Spiritually we are on a great adventure with God. Because He is not ordinary. We just have to keep our spiritual eyes open and looking at Him to see our lives as He does.
He had no stately form or majesty that might catch our attention,no special appearance that we should want to follow him.
