I wonder what You think of the mundane, of the routines of life, Jesus. I wonder if the mundane was created to keep us humble, faithful in the little things…or if the mundane is a result of our fall from glory. Somehow, I think we were created for so much glory that we never experienced boredom. But now, in this fallen state, our glory is hidden, often hidden in the mundane.
Some people adore routine. Some people would rather die than live trapped in routine. Then there is everyone else within these two extremes. I’m one who prefers variety, fresh ideas and experiences. Yet, over the years, I’ve also come to relish the sameness of my morning routine, the joy of bringing order to things — my paperwork, finance, space… It is a strange paradox that I love the novel and the routine, that these two loves co-exist in me. Regardless, I’m grateful to enjoy both, grateful for the many simple pleasures from Your good hand. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
