…to live a life that is an adventure. But no matter how adventurous it is… there will always be monotony. Laundry always has to be done. Dishes always have to be washed. Cars always have to be filled with gas (mine does anyway). Bills always have to be paid. No matter how much you love your job, there will always be parts of it that bore you to death … and you still have to do them.
I’ve been reminded this week – over and over in different ways and places – that God desires to be a part of EVERY aspect of our lives. He wants to be a part of the day to day business of life just as much as he wants to be a part of the big adventures. He has purpose for the monotony as well as for the spectacular moments.
I think these verses speak to that…
Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
I Peter 4:10-11 “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
SO, I’m discovering that when we seek the LORD and His glory in those smaller moments of life… they suddenly become bigger… and more… adventurous!
With Jesus… there is adventure to be found in the monotony.
I like that. ;)
