I have often wished there was a cure for the common life while growing up. It wasn’t until I grew up and met Jesus that I learned that there is exactly one cure for the common life. You have to bury yourself so far inside the heart of God that the common world can’t find you there because they have no access to it.
The life I live is not common. It is extraordinary! Think about it. I get to walk through my days talking to the God who created the entire world whenever I want. I get to lift my eyes to the Heavens and draw on His wisdom. I get to open this book that is full of love letters He wrote just for me and learn more about His heart every day. I get to walk out a purpose in my life that was ordained by God Almighty Himself. I don’t have all the answers, but I know enough to get through this one day and still be walking towards Him instead of away from Him when the day is done. That is the key to the uncommon life. Walking towards God, always.
There is one simple step to start this extraordinary life. Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Confess your sins and invite Jesus to live in your heart. Then give up the wheel and let Him steer for awhile. The road may be bumpy at times, but it will always be worth it when you are riding with Jesus.
