took by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. ~Luke 8:54-55~

My Child,

>Sometimes it’s not the huge, heroic, challenges that are the hardest to face but the small, ordinary things of life--turning off the alarm clock, putting your feet on the floor, making the coffee, changing the baby, driving the carpool.

Today, if you’ve got the feeling you’re on an endless conveyer belt of activities, I want to wake you up to my presence in the midst of your life. In all of these potentially boring situations, Jesus is saying, “Get up, my child! It’s a new day!” If his love was powerful enough to raise a dead girl, it is certainly powerful enough to help you get through this day with hope and humor.

The Father of the Ordinary,
