Ordinary Days

THE

I am appreciating an earlier morning thought from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

“Each day is an important part of that journey.”

 

I’m thinking this ordinary Wednesday or Thursday or any day is an important day.

Today it’s sunny; tomorrow it may rain. Red and white is swaying gently from the gable.  A sturdy water oak extends her sheltering shadow as far as she can. Butterflies dart, rest and dart again from leaf to stem to blade. Life: it’s going on out there. 

It’s going on in here too. 

1 Corinthians 6:19-20  (NLT)

19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the 
Holy Spirit,  who lives in you and was given to you by God?
 You do not belong to  yourself, 
20 for God bought you with a high price. 
So you must honor God with your body.

I watched a documentary yesterday, Monarch Butterflies. Every stage, every day is important. (And some of those days, she’s a real worm!) Each is needed to bring the Monarch to the beauty we appreciate. (Albeit, since yesterday those wormy days and dark in the cocoon days are wildly interesting with charms of their own.  You are tracking this with me, right?) 

Today is important. Submitting this ordinary  day, moment by moment, to the Lordship of our King brings us to our own unique beauty, ordinary day by ordinary day. As in each of the Monarch’s stages of being, we are not yet what we will be, but who we are today must not be wasted or thought little of  – every second given to Him is making us extraordinarily beautiful in our own ordinary way. 🙂

Which led me to this!:

You are as beautiful as Tirtzah, my love,
as lovely as Yerushalayim,
but formidable as an army
marching under banners. source

Jerusalem. Do you know of any place on earth more loved by GOD than Jerusalem? Me either. And formidable?! Could it be DADDY GOD is using this ordinary day to make us formidable in His Kingdom? Formidable as an army marching under banners. I don’t even know what all that means! but I’m thinking it has got to be good!

Did you click and see what Tirtzah means?  Oh yes! On this ordinary day I am Tirtzah! And you my sisters (brothers) are too!

Until then ~ ~ ~ Kathie

NO SIN GOES UNPUNISHED.
EITHER WE BEAR IT OR JESUS DOES FOR US; AND WE GET TO CHOOSE WHO DOES THE BEARING.

  1. Such a refreshing post. Made me think again of the significance of Tirzah. It means “favored one” and so beautiful a name. I am glad to have connected with you at The Loft. One of my dreams is to visit Jerusalem, it being the city where God has placed His Name. And I love the thought that this ordinary day is being made formidable by God… nothing in His economy is ever wasted. Shalom, Lidia

    1. Mine too. A longing of mine for a while now. I know that someday I will be there; just don’t know if it will be in mortal body or immortal 😊 either way I am looking forward to it.
      Yes, nothing in His economy is ever wasted. So good to visit with you today. Thank you, Kathie
