Readjusting my outlook for today


Place Your Life Before God
Romans 1-2 (The Message Bible)
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.

There were a few things around here that were becoming frustrating and then I picked up my Bible today and started reading Romans 12! WOW! I made a very quick attitude adjustment. I LOVE it!
In fact, read all of Romans 12 - it is packed with lots of phrases to underline especially in The Message Bible that I just love to read.

I have been reading Acts in preparation for this fall's Bible study. But I could REALLY use an atitude adjustment today, so I think I will take your advise and read Romans 12

Thanks for the great reminder...I think we can all use a bit of an attitude adjustment and tune up now and again...I love the thought that God cares about our everyday life...
