Discovering beauty in the ordinary

Discovering beauty in the ordinary

My blog’s theme song (is that even a thing?)

My blog’s theme song (is that even a thing?)

Are you “dining at a five star”? Or maybe “feeding orphans in Myanmar”? Are you “hooking up mergers”? Or “cooking up burgers”?

Most of us look at the above list and see contrasts and/or opposite ends of the spectrum. What if instead we just saw these as the beautiful diversity of God’s calling on each of our lives?

All of us play the dangerous game of comparing ourselves to others. The truth is that as a child of God, the CEO dining at a 5 star restaurant has the ability to glorify God as much as the one struggling to feed orphans in Myanmar. The mom changing dirty diapers can glorify her Savior as much as the famous Christian author speaking at conferences around the country. I mean, even when we eat and drink we can do it to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). Wow! Talk about excelling at average.

My prayer, as the song so clearly states, is that we would all

“do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you, ’cause He made you to . . . tell the story of grace with every move that you make and every little thing that you do.”
