And the Five Minute Friday prompt for this week is : Ordinary
Instead, I put my feet out on the cold February morning wood floor and took a peek outside my curtain. It was only a peek, but I could see the snow had made a marvelous transformation outside. At the breaking of dawn the beauty became crystal clear. The snow had alighted on the bare trees like lace and the tapestry was stunning.
It was ordinary snow displaying extra-ordinary beauty.
That is how it works.
Isaiah was told to pick up an ordinary pen to write an extra-ordinary message.
Peter and John were ordinary men but they performed the miraculous and preached extra-ordinary words that brought life.
What seems ordinary, with no special significance, God will use. For His thoughts are higher than our thoughts and His ways are far beyond our imagination and His love is as high as the heavens are above the earth for those that fear Him.
And He takes the ordinary and makes a beautiful display of extra-ordinary.
For as we look to the ordinary tree that was made into a cross we see an extra-ordinary display of love that takes our breath away; Love descended to hang there and transforms what is ugly into something beautiful.
