A Quiet, Ordinary Life

Friends of ours borrowed an amazing book to us, and I was enjoying it with the girls, when we got to this amazing truth:

Much-Afraid looked at the Shepherd. “Sometimes I have wondered about the wild flowers,” she said. “It seems strange that they should grow in places like this where the goats and cattle walk all over them. They have so much beauty and sweetness to give, and hardly anyone sees them.”

The look the Shepherd turned on her was very beautiful. “Nothing that My Father and I have made is ever wasted,” He said quietly, “and the wild flowers have a wonderful lesson to teach. Many people live a quiet, ordinary life. Hardly anyone even knows about them, but their hearts are like delightful gardens where the King Himself walks and rejoices. Some of My servants have won great respect from other people and are famous, but always their greatest victories are like the wild flowers, those which no one knows about….” (Hinds’ Feet on High Places, Hannah Hurnard)

As you begin this week, may you be blessed as you bring delight to Jesus in your quiet, private moments in an ordinary life!
