The Ordinary can do the Extraordinary!

Have you ever wondered what it might feel like to be a brown sparrow in a world filled with red birds, yellow birds, blue birds and majestic eagles?  Perhaps that little, lowly brown bird might think, "Who am I in a world filled with beautiful creations and a big universe.  I might as well give up as I have no real significance in the grand scheme of this world."   

The sparrow might despair and convince itself of this false truth BUT God who created this huge universe has His eye on the sparrow!  The Bible tells us in Matthew 10:29 that not one small sparrow falls to the ground without His knowledge.  So, what is the point?  We may think we are insignificant, lowly, not as beautiful as others...we believe that ordinariness is the precursor to uselessness!  We then chase after the rainbow; the spectacular event; trying to make our 'mark' in this big world.  We don't realize or perhaps reject the fact that our ordinary, run of the mill, daily walk is noticed by God.  We don't need to have the spectacular events to be noticed by God nor make our mark.  You are special and have a purpose in this grand scheme of the world.  Take heart dear friend.  The mundane life you are trudging through is noticed by God...and others unaware to you!    

I will be posting a wonderful story by Dr. Peter Marshall soon.  This story will show how we really do touch the world.  Keep in touch with my social media for another view of how the mundane routine of ordinary people really does affect others and the world around us!
