God Uses the Ordinary
The other day I had the opportunity to take a private guided tour through the Billy Graham Library here in Charlotte. To be honest I wasn’t expecting to be as moved as I was while visiting the library. I just could not get over the fact that God takes the ordinary and makes them extraordinary. How else can you explain an ordinary country boy from Charlotte rising up to become one of the greatest voices for God the world has ever heard? To see how God’s invisible hand was moving throughout the years in Billy Graham’s life was breath-taking. To think, that same God, is moving in my life and wants to use me to accomplish His purposes. No matter who you are or where you are it all begins with a prayer of submission. I love how the Message says it:
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you; Take your everyday ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going to work, and walking around life-and place it before God as an offering.” (Romans 12:1-2).
