The Life of Faith

You Are Extraordinary!!!

Through the Looking GlassIn the movie version of the C.S. Lewis classic, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, one of my favorite quotes comes from — of all people — a mouse. The valiant mouse, Reepicheep, tells the obnoxious Eustace Clarence Scrubb…

Extraordinary things happen to extraordinary people.”

A.W. Tozer put it another way…

It is doubtful that God can use any man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.”

We are all products of our individual pasts. How we allow those pasts to shape us is up to us. Bad things happen, but whether we choose to move forward in victory or sit on the garbage-heap of defeat is up to us.

Do we believe that negative events in life are merely stepping stones, not cornerstones?

Do we allow others to define us, or do we live up to the high calling for which God has ordained us?

The truth is… YOU are an extraordinary person!

God thinks so.

Maybe you should too.

I'm a husband, father, grandfather, and child of the Most High. I enjoy time spent with my Father, pointing others His direction, and watching them be transformed by His love and power. I also enjoy travelling, reading, old cars, and playing with my grandchildren.
