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.
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.
ONE DECISION ~
Humble myself and renew my mind
Daily I write and I start my day off with thanksgiving. I know I wouldn't be their far in life without the love of God and his grace/mercy on my life. Yesterday is done and now faced with this day. A day of blessings and a day of change. Nobody knows what one day hold and yet we seek to find answers throughout our day. Keeping a cheerful heart is such a must in life. Through it all, we must find that JOY that only Jesus can give and rest in knowing that his love reaches farther than we can image.
My one decision ~ to write youdontevenknow.org was huge for me. I began the process of writing and I didn't realize how faithful I could be in writing daily. Years have gone by and yet I hold one decision that I can't seem to accomplish. I know I am to write a book and I tend to hold back. I don't always know what I hold back, because writing you daily is easy for me. It just flows and I love it. I would ask that you pray for me to write. I want the freedom for my fingers to flow with the words that rest inside my heart. There is so much more and I know that God has intended me to write.
What is your one decision that needs to be accomplished today? Maybe it's not today, but you want to accomplish something in your life time. Don't give up on you or your dreams. Anything is possible and giving God thanks for another day of life. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. We can dream big, but action needs to be put to our dreams and not giving up! Happy new day!!!
