i like this…
“…you and I don’t live in a series of big, dramatic moments. We don’t careen from big decision to big decision. We all live in an endless series of little moments. The character of a life isn’t set in ten big moments. The character of a life is set in 10,000 little moments of everyday life. It’s the themes of struggles that emerge from those little moments that reveal what’s really going on in our hearts.” (Tripp)
i actually do enjoy the enormous privilege of introducing the kingdom into the little moments. i’m not making it up… i really do.
give us this day our daily bread. Mt 6:11
i have a huge resource of ‘bread’ that god has made available for today. not for tomorrow… for today. lots of bread, more than enough. i’m not talking about meeting my needs… the kingdom prayer is not about meeting my little needs. it’s about bringing the huge audacious resource of the kingdom of god into my world.
i’m not like an apostle or prophet or whatever… people don’t fall down when i pray. most people i pray for are not healed. my ‘prophecies’ are very vague impressions. but i got the holy spirit… yeah! i got this kingdom community thing going on right inside of me. so i use what i got, in the very ordinary moments, & it ain’t trivial.
step by step… woohoo!
