Five Minute Friday Prompt: Ordinary
If you see me in the grocery store I look like an ordinary woman. There isn't anything strikingly unique about the way I dress or style my hair. I'll probably have at least three children circling around me asking for cereal, or cookies, or potato chips, or all of it combined.
You'll see me get the milk, walk down the Pasta aisle and circle around to the frozen meals. I'll stop and correct my children at least a few times and then continue on with my ordinary day.
I'll line up in the self-checkout lane and let one of the kids scan their food choice over the scanner thing (that's what it's called, right?) and watch his or her face light up because the beeping sound was made.
We'll bag the groceries together and then walk at either a snail's pace or with warp speed to make it unscathed through the parking lot and into the van.
The kids will get settled as I load our purchases into the back, put the cart away and get in the driver's seat.
If you're still watching me you'll see that I take in a big breath and let out a sigh of relief.
We made it. One more grocery trip down. No one was hurt and we got out of there without any major meltdowns.
You may see me as ordinary but deep inside I am extremely unique.
God called me out of my circumstances to have a heart for him. He knows the greater things planned for my life and if I am faithful to the ordinary He will carry me to the Extraordinary.
He will meet me where I'm at and use me to make the difference I so desperately want. All I have to do is trust Him to move, trust Him to show up, trust Him to love me.
You see me as ordinary but God sees me as a mighty warrior princess making a difference right where I am.
