This week’s word prompt is ORDINARY
Moments that feel like they should be ordinary, but turn out to be anything but? Those are the sweetest to me. A cranky child railing against you for imposing bedtimes and manners and kindness, suddenly grabbing your leg and begging for kisses. An angsty Pre-preteen catching you off guard with his “I love you so much mama.” on the way out the door. Your husband’s arrival home from a long day of working hard to provide – and you see a twinkle in his eye, that’s just for you. Yes please!
Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide, means more to me than a job, a meal, or a needed piece of clothing. To me? It also means that He will provide lightning-bright moments of beauty to punctuate my ordinary.
And oh, how I love to be zinged by God. To be reminded of how very much He loves me. And wishes to provide for me. The essentials, sometimes. But sometimes? The essentials are a little less like a choice of cereal and a little more like an unexpected snuggle.
Zing me, God. Let me see all the many splendored ways You show me just how extra-ordinarily beautiful it is to be loved by You.
