Sometimes I wake up from bad dreams. It's crazy how it seems so real and yet it wasn't at all. I wake up with my heart beating fast and my mind a million places. I sometimes cry and I must shake off that feeling. Feelings go different directions and we must purpose our mind back to Romans Chapter 12. It speaks of renewing your mind.
ROMANS ~ 12:1-8 NIV
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.
2 Do not conform any longer 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.
3For 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 measure of faith God has given you.
4Just 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 who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.
7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; 8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
I WOKE UP ~
TIME TO RENEW MY MIND
Each of us are different and God has created us to be who we are in life. Things shapes up and mold us, but we can break some molds that were never meant to be. Life s about living and about sharing time with others. Just as one day brings sun and one day brings rain, God created it all. Let the JOY of the Lord be your strength through it seasons of life.
