Look around to see the beauty of the day. The sun is rising, birds are singing and the day starts off with thoughts. Maybe first you think of what day it is, bringing attention to what is plan for this day. The alarm has rung or maybe you just woke up on your own. Your mind begins to think.
LOOK AND GIVE THANKS ~
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version
A Living Sacrifice
12 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.
MY MIND ~
To offer my body a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God means to keep your mind stayed on what is true, right and the direction of God. So many distractions comes our way in life. We can sit in a room full of people who believe in God and yet our minds can wonder far away. The wonder of why certain things happen to us or what we haven't seen our own dreams come true yet. The Bible says to also RENEW your mind and transform it. It means to stop thinking of old way or old beliefs and start believing the word of God and his plan.
Life changes doesn't always happen over night. It takes waking up each new day with the purpose of keep your mind stayed on purpose. It becomes your purpose to renew your mind. I have friends who are really sick today and they need a miracle. I hear their encouraging words and the struggle at the same time. It's hard to believe big in health, when you are the one who is sick. It's hard to believe in getting a job, when you are the one getting no response from your job application, and the list goes on. But it takes faith to stand through it all.
The scripture above speaks about with standing the test of time. So many things will come our way and yet God remains the same. Renew your mind and start your faith rising today just like the sun. A little brightness coming over that mountain of life and knowing that it will get brighter as time goes by. It's a faith walk, a trust of God walk and renewing of your mind walk.
I thank you for taking the time to read this and pass it onto your friends. I believe that God has something special for you today. Look up and see how far God has brought your life and pop in some positive words inside your mind. My prayers continue for those who read my blog, your family and friends. I know that something are crazy hard to face, but facing it with God is a peace in the middle of it all. Remember, God says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
You can do this day with joy, hope and peace
