I am no longer the things of my past...I am the daughter of the Great I AM.

Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"
2 Corithians 6:18
I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

Look for God's favor in the Ordinary

This week, God has really been reminding me to look for Him in the everyday, ordinary, routines of life. It is easy to see Him and Praise Him when something big happens. But do you recognize His favor as you load the dishwasher, take out the trash, or mow the grass?

In 1 Kings 19, God tells Elijah to "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by." As Elijah stood there, he watched a great and powerful wind, an earthquake, and fire. God was not in any of those. After all of these, there was a gentile whisper. God was in the whisper.

If we are always looking for the extraordinary, we are going to miss that still small voice. God is always speaking to us. He is always loving us. He is always pouring favor on us. Are you looking for it? Or are you waiting for the next "big thing" to come by. I challenge you to enjoy the ordinary that God has blessed you with.


  1. Yeah baby!! God is good ALL the time!

  2. Good word Kerry. Keep it up girl, apparently the holy spirit is speaking through you. Thanks for letting your light shine into our lives.

  3. Absolutely! I am still blown away that the God of the universe takes my call (me . . . nobody), every time! I'm amazed almost every single day by the things God brings to my attention in the "ordinary".

    Glad I decided to follow, thanks so much!
