Mundane Musings

September 28, 2019

Do you think all that have ever lived this life on earth have felt the disparity of what we think we can or want to become and where we end up finding ourselves? We want to fly and leap over all that gets in our way to achieve our dreams and goals. Yet, here we are. And even those few that may reach a greatness of some kind beyond their wildest dreams…well, they can’t just stay there. They still have the day-to-day stuff. And history shows that life can even become hardest and saddest for those people, can’t it?

Back in 1980, Amy Grant’s song, “All I Ever Have to Be,” resonated deeply in my heart. She poetically sang of this struggle. I realized my struggle was common and shared by others. And now as I begin retirement, I’m still right there. Seeking meaning, seeking achievement in my day-to-day life. As a chaplain during WWI Oswald Chambers noted, “The things that Jesus did were of the most menial and commonplace order, and this is an indication that it takes all of God’s power in me to do the most commonplace things in His way…Towels, dishes and sandals, all the ordinary sordid things of our lives, reveal more quickly than anything what we are made of.” Jesus’ example of greatness was washing His disciples’ feet.

 

This walk of faith sure doesn’t follow the ways of this world, does it?
