Ordinary Is Good!

I am just a man!  Sometimes I still act like a little boy and I still enjoy doing childish things.  I want to be more than a man, but I usually end up messing that up.  I am learning that I need to be comfortable being a man, because that is who and what my Creator has created me to be.

I don’t have to be extraordinary, I can’t save anybody and a running around with a red cape will just make me look silly.  I just need to be the man – I was created to be.  A husband to my wife, a dad to my kids, a friend to my friends, a faithful worker to my calling and an open vessel for my Creator to use as He sees fit.

While I am often a boy trapped in a man’s body, I also realize that I am God’s creation and He has an amazing plan for my life.  The really beautiful and amazing thing is this:  He has an amazing plan for your life too!

Step outside of the busyness of trying to be whatever it is that you are trying to be and enjoying the simple being of who and what God created you to be.  Ordinary is good and by the way, ordinary is what God uses to make extraordinary!  Blessings!

Psalm 51:10-13  10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
