Just ordinary

So my whole life I’ve always thought I was just average, just ordinary. Nothing really special about me, nothing that stood out or was too impressive. I really struggled with this last summer in Zambia because I felt like everyone on my team was really good at something and I wasn’t good at anything. I re-read through my journal the other night from the summer and I what I read was exactly what I needed to hear. In my journal I had written a quote from a book I read called The Dangerous Surrender.

“Ordinary people. God uses ordinary people. He chooses people just like me and you, who are willing to do as He commands. God uses people that will give Him all, no matter how small your all may seem to you; Because little becomes much as you place it in the Master’s hand.”

I may be ordinary, but that’s okay. I know I’m willing to do as Christ commands and I’m willing to give my all to Him. And I know he can make something I think is just ordinary into extraordinary.

  1. Abby Buter, you bless my heart! But I would just like to say that nothing about you is “ordinary”. Your passionate spirit drenches my heart with joy! If only you could see how God has used you to wake me up! And that is most definitely extraordinary!
