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

Multitudes on Mondays - May 16

I am new to Multitudes on Mondays. My gifts have previously been listed under Counting My Blessings. I started last November and have a ways to go to 1000! It has been such a blessing to focus on the abundant blessings that God daily lavishes on me. The journey hasn't always been rosy, in fact mid-Jan. to mid-Feb. was downright dark. Even in the dark times there has been joy in my heart as I look to my Source and worship Him.
