Ordinary or ExtraOrdinary

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. — Jimmy Johnson

OverAchiever / OverBeliever

To be an overachiever, you have to be an overbeliever. – Coach Dabo Swinney, Clemson

Brilliant Coach and human… This is from a Tigernet article…

“There’s no elevator to greatness,” Swinney said. “There are no elevators to your goals and dreams and desires. You must take the steps. Everybody got that? Nobody’s giving you an elevator to take you (there). If they did, it ain’t gonna last, because you’re not going to be prepared, because you didn’t pay the price, alright? What I’m telling you is y’all never been 15. You’ve never been 20. You’ve never been 25. But hopefully, Lord willing, you will be, so what we want to do is try to prepare you, through our experiences, through our mistakes, through our successes, so hopefully, you’ve got a leg up on being successful.” – TigerChat

Every Man, Casting Crowns

1. There is one instance in life when it’s good to be something you’re not.
It’s when you are being Jesus to another.
It’s when you love a neighbor, or a stranger unconditionally, putting themselves before yourself.
When this song says “Will we help them understand?” think about that and think about how you may be “the only Jesus that someone may see today.”

2. The song has a lot of the “titles” that we call ourselves:
“Teacher, Leader, Coach, Soldier, broken man, nervous child, lonely wife”
But someone once asked me “Are you living your life as a title, or a testimony?”
He said “Pharoah had a title, but Moses had a testimony”
We should live our lives in such a way that it is a testimony that draws others to Christ.
So that we can change the lives of those who live only for titles.

3. Hey, while this song is playing think about the person that’s near you.
They may be needing hope, so say a quick prayer for them.
And, you never know, they may be listening too,
and they may be doing the same for you.
