Romans 12:1-8 (NIV)
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice,holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Humble Service in the Body of Christ
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts,according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
A NEW DAY OF HOPE ~
We are one day closer to freedom of shelter in place
Being a positive person is a good thing but it doesn't mean you don't have battles yourself. The mind is one that take on thoughts and you can grow those thoughts into worry too. Keeping your mindset on things that God promises and turning your thoughts away from whys of life. There is a reason that God says to renew your mind. God knew we would need help from time to time to overcome negative thoughts. It's important to read the Bible and grab onto scriptures of hope.
Romans 15:13 (NIV)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Keep Romans 15:13 alive inside of you. The God of hope, I replay that statement a lot. He is the God of hope and I believe that. What will he do? He will fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him. Why? So you will overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. I am holding tight to that scripture today and believe big that he is working behind the scenes of our lives. Let me remind you that he is the same God who parted the red sea, took Noah and his family to a new land, healed the blind man and the list goes on. God continues to be a miracle worker today and I've seen it in my own family.
A new day brings new thoughts and new hope! I will purpose this a good day and I hope you do too.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
