"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind". Romans 12:2
Wow! Boy is this one for me. I have been searching for a verse that I can work on and put to use. I kept waiting for prompting in some direction. I thought maybe it would be a verse on judging. I have a real habit of being full of advice for others and not always be able to see the log in my own eye. But this is the one that jumped off the page and called to me.
I have been trying real hard to put my faith where my mouth is lately. With the help of Joyce Meyer ( no not in person, I watch her everyday now) I have learned that being a Christian is a call to action. My Christian life seemed to be great, I had ask God into my life years ago. I went to church almost every Sunday, Listened patiently to my boys as they pray at night, I also prayed every night before bed, didn't drink, smoke, swear. Gosh I thought I must have it all together. WRONG! My walk with Christ was a surface walk, not an intimate relationship with Christ. I am called to continue to read and pray, spread the gospel, and talk to God all day long. I should be a reflection of his behavior, everyday all the time. People should be able to see God in me. I should be able to see the joy in everyday. Well, gosh how can I do that if I live "as the world lives"? Instead of blindly foolowing along with the world I need to use God's rules and life as my meter. I know better and now with this verse I will do better.
Things are starting to pop around here! Next week is a big birthday week at our house. Kendall will be 1 on the 13th, Tim will be (hmmmm older) on the 14th, and Taylor will be 6 on the 16th. We are having a big party to celebrate on Saturday. I was hoping the sunroom would be done and we could have our party there but we are a long way from that so we will be in the house.
Praying and praising God everyday............
