Day One: Uncommon Women
READING: Luke 2:36-38
Take a moment and add 50 years to your current age. Think about what you would look like. Would you still have your own teeth and be able to see? How mobile would you be, where would you be living and what would you be doing?
Anna became a widow when very young, after only seven years of marriage. She expressed her faith and love for God in uncommon worship (by living in the temple and worshipping day and night) for the rest of her life.
A modern example for me is Mama K who has lived a long life and was baptised into Christ at the age of 102. She was in the group of 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1956 to protest against the pass laws. She’s lived a long life and has seen many things. Now, at the “advanced” age of 105, she continues to set an example for her family. That is truly an uncommon life.
And then, there’s you. There is no-one else like you. You’re one-of-a-kind, an original. Your unique life experiences, strengths, and weaknesses make you uncommon.
Genesis 1:27 says you were made in the image of God. He is an uncommon God who:
Wants to have a relationship with what he has created.
Chose an uncommon way to reconcile us to him. He had sent his only son, to die a horrible death for those who lived as his enemies. He chose forgiveness over retribution, mercy rather than punishment and love rather than hate. He made salvation and grace freely available to all. You don’t need to earn it.
REFLECTION: Do you believe God has chosen you to live an uncommon life? (Ephesians 5:1-2) To live for him rather than yourself and with passion and purpose in your life instead of indifference and “going with the flow”?
Will you show patience instead of anger, a smile instead of a frown, a word of encouragement instead of criticism? Will you bite your tongue and not say something negative, continue to care instead of withdrawing when others hurt you, set an example every day even if your reward will only come in the next life?
PRAYER FOCUS: Thank God for making you exactly the way you are, an uncommon woman.
ACTION: Take time today to thank the “uncommon” women who have impacted your life and helped shape who you are.
