Five Minute Friday: Ordinary

Welcome, Friends!

I will be spending my first “Five Minute Friday’ with Lisa-Jo Baker and the Five-minute crowd. Today, I am taking five minutes to write on the prompt Ordinary.  Would you like to spend five minutes to write unrestrained, and let your heart and mind soar?

  1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
  2. Link back and invite others to join in, http://lisajobaker.com/five-minute-friday/.
  3.  Visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community…Why don’t you join us?

 

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

 

Go:

God uses the old, the broken and the ordinary people of this world to show us His great love and compassion.  How many times have I felt the sting of Satan’s whispering lies, “That I am unworthy or not good enough to serve a Holy God.”  Would I cover my face in shame and hide from the God who knows me best and still loves me?

Like Moses who spent 80 years trying to find meaning for his life, God brought him to a burning bush moment and gave him both meaning and purpose in serving him. I am so glad God can use ordinary, broken people to share His Good News and love to a broken and hurting world.

Father, help me stand with open hands before you, submitting to your will. I want my ordinary life to be extraordinary for you.

Stop.

Christ paid a price we could never pay, to give us life we did not deserve. 

We are truly loved.

Do you ever feel like you are too old, to broken or flawed to be usable to God? Do you think it’s too late for you?  I would love to connect, let me hear your thoughts.

  1. Hi there. I am visiting the links at the Five Minute Friday today. I normally link up. This week I was too tired. Yes, I feel this way at times. I am so thankful for a God who uses ordinary broken people like us to do His work. Blessings to you!

  2. Hi, Karan! Welcome to our FMF family. So glad you decided to give this a shot. I absolutely loved your post. It resonated with me in such a perfect way. This is exactly where I am right now in my walk with Christ, learning to embrace the fact that we, as ordinary people, were created to do extraordinary things for the glory of God. Awesome post! I hope you’ll be back for more. (Visiting from Lisa-Jo’s page)
