Day 28: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

This post is one in a series of posts called “Glimpses of God” which I am writing as part of the Write31Days blog challenge. You can find the other posts here: 31 Glimpses of God Blog Challenge (#write31days)

My tagline for this blog is “seeking glimpses of His Glory in my mundane.” Yesterday was one of those mundane kind of days, which was actually a blessing. The past week and a half has been filled with extreme highs and lows so a day of mundane normalcy was like a breath of fresh air.

I laid in bed last night processing the day and asking God to reveal to me what I should write about today. I found myself repeating the phrase, “it was just a normal day.” But that’s when I realized that my glimpse of His glory was in that normalcy.

I have been praying for a day to catch my breath, a day to get caught up on lesson writing and regular to-do’s. God provided that yesterday.

My day seemed mundane at first, yet how can I call a day spent in the presence of my Creator and King mundane??? As I reflect back on my day I realize that:

I was able to spend focused time in the Word of God during my personal devotions.

I was blessed to be able to write a children’s lesson from the Book of Jude (translating that to elementary kids was nothing short of a miracle!)

I sat at my table surrounded by three different versions of the Bible, while also using a fourth electronic version as I typed on my laptop. How many people around the world long to have just one Bible that they can hold in their arms without fear of losing their life???

I picked my kids up from school and they actually talked to me about their day!

And we spent time with our church family that night at Chick-Fil-A (translation: I didn’t have to cook and I could feel good about that because it was a church thing 😉 )

So my ordinary mundane day was a gift from my Savior, filled with His Presence and overflowing with abundant blessings which actually made it pretty extraordinary!

See you tomorrow,
Jen
