Summer is Here!!
I know it’s not June 21 first yet, but hey, school is getting out and we are in the 90’s temperature wise. So…SUMMER. I always find that as the Seasons change, there is a since of a new, fresh slate ahead of me. Maybe I didn’t get everything done in the Spring that I had hoped, but now Summer is here…so let’s give it another shot.
This since of newness is important in a lot of areas of our lives, but here is the most important one:
“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 MSG)
