Happy Monday, friends! Thanks so much for joining me. Today’s letter is E and for it I chose the word extraordinary. I love this word because it literally means extra ordinary. Or, if you want to get more technical, Dictionary.com defines extraordinary like this:
- David defeats Goliath. A young boy with a sling and a rock defeats a mighty warrior. ( 1 Samuel 17)
- The walls of Jericho come tumbling down from just the blare of horns and days of marching around them. (Joshua 6)
- Sarah gives birth to Issac when she is in her nineties. (Genesis 21)
There are so many more stories of God using ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary tasks through His equipping.
I have several examples from my own life to share:
- The gift of birth is extraordinary, and I had the privilege of giving birth to two beautiful daughters.
- Writing is a gift from the Lord. I’ve written and published eight novels. Eight. All through God’s equipping.
- He has made me a new creation. (2 Corinthians 5:17) “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” ~ Psalm 40:2
What extraordinary thing has God done in your life? Let me know in the comments below.
