Tired of Being Ordinary

this month i've reflected a lot on who i am, where i'm going and the woman i want to be. it's been a refreshing month as my work has finally picked up and i've been busier.

my main conclusion from all this over-thinking [i think way too much but feel i got somewhere this time ahha!] is that i don't want to be ordinary. i don't want to live an ordinary life. 

if i truly believe i have the Holy Spirit living in me, i am anything but ordinary. i have the power that raised Jesus from the dead living inside of me, even as a type this. i've had this knowledge for a long time but i want to get better at practising complete surrender to let the Holy Spirit totally rule and reign in my life.

Jesus is so beyond this world and i so desperately want to get better at living a life that isn't explainable. i want people to look at me and only see Jesus. i don't want my life, my marriage, the way i treat people to be ordinary. i want to serve people with a love that could never come from me, i want to serve Mark in a way that society would never understand. i want to see people how Jesus sees them. O Lord, would you give me a glimpse of how you see this broken and hurting world.

this revelation isn't new in my life, but perhaps has come to the forefront of my heart because i honestly believe Jesus has way more for my life than ordinary and explainable. 

i am going to live forever in eternity with Jesus but for now on this earth i have work to do for the glory of God. i don't want to be satisfied with going through the motions of each day. i want to live each day surrendering my life to Jesus so He can preform miracles through me and around me.

you were created for so much more than ordinary. 

can you relate? have you ever felt ordinary like me and knew you were made to do more, be more, serve more?

my friend, Jesus wants to give you a life with purpose, with meaning. He created and designed you to be anything but ordinary. I hope you'll think about giving Him a chance in your life.

i know God has plans for my life beyond my wildest dreams - and trust me, this girl can dream big dreams. i want live an extraordinary life for Jesus that doesn't make sense with worldly logic.

would love to know if you've ever felt this way or have any help of how to practically live this out!

Pray you'll be blessed today.
