Romans 12:1-2

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. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

  1. I think it's important to give thanks despite the devastation across the country. I think it grounds us and keeps our hearts in check. Great list and it's good to have a moment to visit :) Life on my end has been very busy but good.

    Have a wonderful weekend!


Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
