These are the type of days that seem to blend together. There were no great tragedies or big surprises, just average days. When we think about it, the average days make up the bulk of our lives. We only have one birthday a year. There are a few holidays that most of us look forward to. Most take a little time each year for some sort of vacation. But, much of the time we live through long stretches of ordinary days, those with little fan fare.
As I thought of the significance of these ordinary days, if for no other reason their sheer numbers, I realized that we serve a God who is in the midst of our ordinary days. In fact, an ordinary day is quite extraordinary when we really think about it. I am saved; thus I have enjoyed fellowship with my Lord today. What is ordinary about that? I have enjoyed a measure of good health today. My family made it through the night and is functioning today. I have a place to live, food to eat, and more clothes than I could possibly need. These are all things that we have grown so accustomed to that we consider them ordinary and even take them for granted, but they are anything but ordinary. These are all blessings from our Lord. In His great mercy, He chose to bless us, even though He knew that we would really not even notice. I sure am glad that my blessings on any ordinary day are not dependent upon my awareness of them. If they were, I would probably have much less than I currently enjoy.
I suppose the point I am trying to make is this: we are blessed beyond measure and don't even realize it much of the time. Those ordinary days are just as special as the real memorable ones. God is just as good to us on any given day than He is on any other. Psalm 40:5 - Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
Have you taken the time to thank the Lord for His abundant blessings today? If not, I would encourage you to do so. He has blessed us abundantly and He is worthy of our thanksgiving!
