Ordinary

The truth is I am scared to death that I have nothing to offer because I am just plain old me. I am not gifted with poetry or music; my talent is just well, ordinary. I wonder what great thing God would have me do for him and then I realize it's not the one great thing, but the million small things that count.



I feel so unworthy sometimes, yet God has given me opportunities this week to really minister to the hearts of two of my sisters in Christ. I had no idea what to say. I mean who am I really? I'm just Simone. What do I have to offer? Sometimes I feel like I should come with my alabaster box, but all I have is the widow's mite.

I guess all I have to offer is me, plain, old, ordinary me. Hopefully when I give of myself I can point people to Him. What do I have to say anyway, but the words that his Spirit give?

  2. I can relate to your writings, but we all need to be confident that God is using us mightily each day. Sounds like you are starting to realize this. I'm sure you are lifting up and encouraging others all that time. Have a great Friday.

  3. I know how you feel Simone. But I guess that is what gives God the glory in our lives. The greatness within us IS HIM. He receives the glory. ;-) He uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things doesn't He?

    Bless you today! I hopped over from Lisa-Jo's.

  7. Your story, your voice, YOU are extraordinary. Why? Because there is only one you and only you can be you to be the person that you are to your two sisters in Christ, your neighbours, the people you meet everyday in your life. You are the daughter of the most High God. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
