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,


About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.
