Five Minute Friday} "Ordinary"

It has been a not so ordinary day.
It's actually been a not so ordinary past year, 
the world around me spins with uncertainty, 
and some fear of whether I've made,
or am making good decisions as a Wife and Mother.
I sometimes take a moment, 
close my eyes, 
and just try to breathe in the ordinary, 
I just want an ordinary day!  Please!
Jesus whispers in my heart that
Ordinary doesn't leave much room for growth, 
through all of this uncertainty He is anything but ordinary.
And because He is anything but ordinary
I can trust that He will make my sometimes not so ordinary days
into a beautiful masterpiece...
all His own!

"He knows that what may be a tremendous blessing for you later could completely wreck your life now.  For this reason, though the Lord hears your prayer, He often pauses to give you time to prepare for that blessing" - Charles Stanley, In Touch Ministries
