I’m ordinary.

But God sent his son down to earth to die for me…

So He could stand in my place, take all my sin upon him, die on a cross and create a way for me to know and be known by the Father…

So I could be filled by His Holy Spirit…

And take ordinary me and make me extraordinary…

So he can work in my life to do ‘More than I could ever ask or imagine‘.

So he can use me, His MASTERPIECE (no longer ordinary) to do good works that He planned before I was even born…

So that although I may look like a clay jar, there is treasure hidden within me…

So I can carry the God colours and God flavours into the world.

So that I carry the fragrance of Christ to the dead and dying…

So He can take His amazing God story, and my story becomes a couple of pages in His book, in the missing pages between the end of the New Testament Letter and the Book of Revelation.

Thank you Father God for taking my ordinary life and making it significant and extraordinary. Help us to write our pages in your big story. Amen

The importance of a name

Today I had dinner with the Bishop…well actually 2 bishops cos there was one visiting from Africa as well as our bishop. I was there to collect my certificate in Children’s ministry. We had lovely meal, followed by the Bishop handing out our certificates and having our picture taken shaking his hand. Now I have a complicated name…yet he pronounced it flawlessly, for once there was no embarrassment over my name, just the honour of succeeding in studying for this. Then as I was up there he asked me which church I was at, and immediately named my vicar. Small details…but they gave me significance. 

What small ways can we give others significance?
