Personal Blog by Rhonda Crowdis Hardisty

crossheartEvery week a prompt is given by to just write because it doesn’t matter if it’s just right. Today’s 5 minute topic is Ordinary.

Start: 7:23 AM

As a Christian we should strive to be extraordinary. We should not blend in. We are a chosen people who should be a light in a seeking world. People need us to show them the way. I don’t want to be ordinary. I want God to use me to help others. I want Him to direct me to say things and to do things that others need to hear and see. I want to be His light in the darkness. I want to be extraordinary.

As a parent and grandparent I strive to be extraordinary. I want to be part of their lives and part of their world. I want to show them the way to live while loving Jesus. I want to teach them to be caring and giving to others. I want to introduce them to the relationship I have with Christ as not only my Savior, but also as my Father. I want to live an extraordinary life.

As a teacher, I want to be extraordinary. I strive to advocate for my students and help them and their parents to obtain everything they need to be successful. I want to be a voice for the voiceless. I need to be an appropriate reflection of Jesus, as I may be the only Jesus they see.
I strive to be extraordinary in this ordinary world.

Stop: 7:28 AM

  1. Rhonda,
    Like you, I also want to show my grandchildren the love of Jesus. To display the fruit of His spirit instead of letting them see fleshly reactions. Enjoyed your post. And you’re right, for some people we are the only Jesus they see.

  2. Rhonda, thanks for stopping by my blog. Continue to let your LIGHT shine! Sometimes just living our lives in Christ in front of others is all that is needed to let them see Him!
