Being exceptional in the ordinary!

From Oswald Chambers:
We do not need the grace of God to withstand crises — human nature and pride are sufficient for us to face the stress and strain magnificently. But it does require the supernatural grace of God to live twenty-four hours of every day as a saint, going through drudgery, and living an ordinary, unnoticed, and ignored existence as a disciple of Jesus. It is ingrained in us that we have to do exceptional things for God — but we do not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life, and holy on the ordinary streets, among ordinary people — and this is not learned in five minutes.

Abba, please help me to keep turning to YOU, every day, every hour, every minute, that I may live as a saint should live…fully surrendered, a servant, listening for every call, looking for every opportunity to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life.

About Abigail

I am a woman who loves life and loves to see others love life, too. I love and serve the Creator, the God of the Bible...the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Because of what the Creator has done in my life, I am here to help others now. I hope we can journey together!
