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

Blame It On the Rain

Though I leave my purse at the frozen yogurt place, though I run over a dead skunk on the way home and can't park the car in the garage because of the smell, though the earth keeps shaking, though the roof is leaking (again) and we need to call a repairman, though my car now smells like wet skunk, yet I am thankful for the rain. I am thankful for a car to drive, money to buy frozen yogurt and someone to share it with, and for our home. I will rejoice in the Lord, my covenant maker and keeper. I will be joyful in God my Savior.

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. Habakuk 3:16-18
