I haven't been blogging much for two reasons. One is- we have a stinky camera that only occasionally has batteries in it. Two- my mind has been in a million different places in a million different ways all with a million different emotions.
Anyway, my mom shared a verse with me a couple of days ago that she wanted me to read out of The Message- which is more a paraphrase than a translation.
Romans 12:1 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out.
I love the "sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life" part. Place it before God as an offering. Is it that simple?
Okay. Here You go! I'm ready to be changed from the inside out.
