Hey hey hey!
I hope you guys are doing awesome? Isn’t it such a beautiful day/week already? It sure is by faith!
It really is a privilege being able to connect with you guys! I’m not even kidding, my heart swells all the time. It just keeps enlarging with love. I bless the day I started blogging. I can’t deny that it’s been one of the major push in my spiritual walk.
You can’t keep writing about Jesus and not grow. I love it and it’s a privilege to serve!
Ok, let’s be real today. (Not like we’re fake on other days!)
Two days ago I had to decline an offer to be part of something, because I had to pay a certain amount to join.
I had actually already accepted, but was reminded of God’s word to me for this season –
1 Timothy 6:6
Godliness with Contentment is great gain.
I had to realign my thinking and declined it, but I was hurt.
I started to feel inadequate. Why can’t I just do what my mates are doing?
It’s unfair that I have to decline things!
After my rant. God met me in the kitchen.
Funny thing is, I’d just broken my fast few minutes ago and had spent time praying in tongues o.
Isn’t it funny how devil knows just the right time to bombard your faith and deceive!
Anyway, as I prepared beans(the most awesome food in the world); I heard God clearly say – STAY ORDINARY.
I was a little confused on what that meant.
God, what do you mean by asking me to stay ordinary?
Keep doing you. Keep living.
Wake everyday and do what God asks of you.
Sleep at night knowing you walked with God the whole day.
No one might notice. Life may seem boring.
You may need to decline a lot of stuff; but don’t lose yourself within all of that.
You may ask-‘But my days just always look the same! There’s nothing exciting about me.’
It’s fine, as long as you stay ordinary.
The ironic thing is that I always unashamedly say that I’m not ordinary. I’m special to God and I know it.
So, when God is asking us to stay ordinary, though we’re not ordinary; what does He mean!?!
Don’t be after fame, money, prestige, likes, shares, acknowledgement as much as you’re after His righteousness.
Do not put anything above God.
He must be your priority.
Just keep obeying what He says to do each day. And someday soon, all those mundane days will make meaning to you. They will make much sense!
Whatever you do, make sure you stay ordinary!
Thanks a lot for reading.
