The White Horse Inn podcast recently held a series titled “Ordinary”. I found these both convicting and challenging, especially the first one. SeeÂ below for links to the various podcasts
Iâ€™ve come to the point where Iâ€™m not sure anymore just what God counts as radical. And I suspect that for me, getting up and doing the dishes when Iâ€™m short on sleep and patience is far more costly and necessitates more of a revolution in my heart than some of the more outwardly risky ways Iâ€™ve lived in the past. And so this is what I need now: the courage to face an ordinary day â€” an afternoon with a colicky baby where Iâ€™m probably going to snap at my two-year old and get annoyed with my noisy neighbor â€” without despair, the bravery it takes to believe that a small life is still a meaningful life, and the grace to know that even when Iâ€™ve done nothing that is powerful or bold or even interesting that the Lord notices me and is fond of me and that that is enough.
