Ordinary Days

Linking up with Charlotte aSpiritual Sunday and Laura at Beholding Glory

"You can find something truly important in an ordinary minute." Mitch Albom

Sometimes I wake up and think....it's gonna be another regular day...ordinary....nothing out of the norm.....but then... something happens and it turns into the best day ever....a day of connecting with someone amazing...a day to share my story and give hope.....a day to accomplish something I thought I just couldn't do....but somehow did....

And I know......it's because He's in my world....opening doors...closing other ones....always there....in my corner....making me smile....showing me things that light up my life.....and introducing me to people I'd never have met without Him.  

With Him on the journey....life's a cool adventure. Sometimes I make plans for the day.....but then half way through it....everything changes.....and the ordinary becomes spectacular.....amazing......exceptional......and I know it's cause of Him.....

When the new day begins Your mercies are new again....You said You'd never leave....and I believe.....I'm so grateful You are my friend......

I had a couple of these days this week and it was a blessing to be able to share the detour of my life and in turn help to make another's day less sad and helping them to not give-up, keep the faith and believe they are not alone; HE is always with them helping them to overcome detours and learn from within , so they too can go and help others.

Wishing you many more beautiful days ...blessings, xo HHL

Thank you for the gift of this wonderful video, the images are breathtaking! I love the blue grotto with all the waterfalls, and when they give the bible quote about paradise, they show a bird of paradise flower! Yes, God can see the future and the big plan, we cannot see ahead. So why not trust the plan of our maker and let him guide us one step at a time, being flexible along the way for the changes of where He is taking us!

Renee said...

Isn't it wonderful to be a part of God's Kingdom, as we live each day on this earth. We are never alone. We are always with Jesus when we make Him our Lord and Savior.

I enjoy your uplifting posts. You have a wonderful blog here. God Bless you and keep up the Good Work. And we give God all the Glory for great things He has done. Amen.

You know I often think that I should pray for those "out of the ordinary" days, asking God whom I might come in contact with that needs to hear about His son.

Many blessings...

I'm so thankful for the "God-moments" and surprises that God sprinkles into our ordinary days.

Everyday I'm so thank-ful for the doors that the Lord opens. When he closes one I sometime ask him why,but knowing he knows best.

Great post, Nikki. So full of simple truths. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is that passage in Psalm 139 which says, "All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before a single one of them came to be."

We never know how each day will turn out. Each day is always special... God-ordained... God-breathed. Filled with mercy, beauty, and compassion!

How right you are. We never know... but God does! All we need do is to go with the flow of His spirit.

Much love
Lidia
