Ordinary People~Extraordinary Things

God uses Ordinary People to do

I use to tell my kids this when they were growing up: “I don’t care what career you have when you grow up as long as you love God and let Him love others through you.”

They heard it a lot. And I meant it because I struggled for years with “am I doing enough?” I chose to believe that unless I was in a tropical rainforest somewhere as a missionary, I was not doing “enough” for God.

But God uses “Ordinary people to do Extraordinary things.”

Check out the people from the Bible and how the Father used them!! I will start with Abraham, Noah, David…Mary! The list never stops!

But, first things first….Knowing that God loves us without condition. Unless we understand that it doesn’t matter what we DO or what we DON’T do…God still loves us; we will struggle for the rest of our lives. I believe that is the most important thing we can ever teach our children.

Always remembering that it is their choice….we cannot make them believe that….but we must do all we can do to teach it and model it.

Henry Blackaby (www.blackaby.net) has a course that my husband I took over 20 years ago entitled “Experiencing God”. We were taught that God was at work all around us and we just got to join Him wherever that was if we chose to.

That is the kicker….He doesn’t need us folks. We get to be a part of His work if we join Him and we are blessed. He will use someone else if we don’t participate…

Paul said this in Acts 17:24-25 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.”

So what can we teach our children? To love those that we come in contact with…getting to know God’s character and who His and allowing Him to live “in us” is what it is all about.  It will carry us through our entire life, no matter our career choice.

I will continue this on Wednesday….keep an open mind and an open heart…

And remember,

“God uses Ordinary people to do Extraordinary things”

~Be Blessed

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
