The Present Moment

“It is ingrained in us that we have to do exceptional things for God—but we do not.  We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life, and holy on the ordinary streets, among ordinary people—and this is not learned in five minutes.”  Oswald Chambers

Holy…it means “set apart”…not so much from something, but unto something.  But what “something”?  How can we live the extraordinary in the ordinary?  How do we extract gold from the dirt of our everyday ordinary lives? 

Could the answer lie in “living in the moment”—that over used cliché that no time-driven ordinary person really knows how to do? 

Be holy for I AM holy.  I AM…His very Name reveals the present.  Holy, set apart unto I AM—the Present Moment—living life with holy awareness of the eternal destiny of the present moment.  Living in the “I AM”, daily extracting  the exceptional in the midst of the ordinary.

In the present moment, God uses those who are available to Him.  He chooses to frame Himself in the moment, and we get to enter into that sacred space with Him, our ordinary merging with His Holy. 

Extraordinary life, we get to live…”exceptional in the ordinary things of life, and holy on the ordinary streets, among ordinary people“.
