Questions: Am I living life to the fullest? What’s next? Am I missing something?  Where am I on this journey?

Thoughts from Beth Moore: Extraordinary things happen around us continually.  We just don’t always recognize them.  The thought occurs to me afresh that great lives don’t always seem great while we’re living them.  They may seem embarrassingly regular.  Seeking to be extraordinary isn’t the answer because great lives are never achieved by making greatness the goal.

Everyone of us who embraces the glory of God as our purpose will end up doing great things precisely because we do God-things. His holy hand resting on the least act renders the ordinary extraordinary.  Spooning soup into the mouth of the weak or manning the nursery so a tired mom can go to church are acts of high worship when offered in the name of Christ.  He beholds the sight like a breathtaking work of art, tilting His head to study each subtle detail.
