Getting Out Of The Daily Routine
Posted on: October 27, 2014, by : Brandon Gilliland

Staying caught in the daily routine of life can often distract from God’s calling on your life. Everywhere I turn, I am in contact with individuals who seem to have no clear purpose.

 

Is this life really only about making advancements in one’s career? Or perhaps marrying that “perfect” someone? Or even living a decent life helping others?

 

My basic daily “routine” involves waking up early, starting classes in the morning, rushing to lab to conduct research until dinner time, and then study until I go to sleep. Until recently, I repeated this routine each day only to become more discouraged and frustrated the next day.

 

In college, you can have:

 

1. Social life

2. Sleep

3. Grades

 

But you can only choose two of the options. If you are a college student, I’m sure you have heard this many times. To a certain extent, it is true. But I believe God calls us to much more.

 

The reason I wanted to write all of this today is to share what God has been teaching me recently. There’s more to life than just the daily routines. We are here on the earth for a special purpose, and it involves more than just existing.

 

God wants to take the ordinary, and He wants to make it extraordinary. The only thing standing in the way is you.

    I love this Brandon! I have been feeling like this a lot lately! You can’t be extraordinary if we have warped into what society wants of us.
