Bread for the journey


Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer 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.

Romans 12: 1,2

I share these verses with you today because I have recently memorized them.
They were given to me by a friend with the intention that I should memorize them, saturating my mind with the truth of God.

It seems that if we become consumed by what worries us. . .
we will soon fall right into a dangerous pit of the enemy.
I found that once I offered myself a cracked and broken pot back to God. .once more. .
and then saturated myself in his word.. .
my joy returned and I remembered that I am pleasing to God.

Finding yourself in a pit of worry and despair?
Memorize the verse this week.
You may as I did, need to say it over and over many times a day.
There truly is nothing more wonderful than having the peace of God fill me. .
and know that I am in His will.

Blessings!
