What is Ordinary?

I don’t live an exciting life.

I recently heard a sermon where the preacher said that it is easy to get discouraged about your life, job, and diet if you spend too much time on Instagram.

See, in that little square glowing world, everyone’s life looks perfect.

Not real, but perfect.

And I’m susceptible. If I’m not careful, I can get the impression that EVERYONE has EVERYTHING better than me. And that can bog a guy down.

Trusting a God that is not visible and that sometimes can even feel distant is not always easy, either. God IS worthy of our trust and our faith, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy when (it feels like) nothing is happening. 

(it feels like) Momentum has stalled.

(it feels like) Giving up is an option.

We don’t feel the movement of the earth hurtling through the Solar System at thousands of miles an hour either. Doesn’t mean it isn’t happening in dramatic fashion.

I know that I know that I know that God loves me and is for me. Even when I forget.
