I am so completely over the thrills and chills. Well, I want to be over it. I want to find meaning in the ordinary. Nothing major need to happen in my life for me to know I'm living. I want to know that I'm living my best life even if my best life is going to work, going to church and hanging out with my small group of friends. I want to be satisfied with that. I don't want to need to travel the world to feel like I'm living my best life. I don't want to resent the days when I have nothing pleasurable doing.
“The kind of spiritual life and disciplines needed to sustain the Christian life are quiet, repetitive, and ordinary. I often want to skip the boring, daily stuff to get to the thrill of an edgy faith. But it’s in the dailiness of the Christian faith—the making the bed, the doing the dishes, the praying for our enemies, the reading the Bible, the quiet, the small—that God’s transformation takes root and grows.”
