I had to look up Romans 12 today because the verse "be transformed by the renewing of your mind" was going round and round in my head.
When life just seems to be dragging you down, are you allowing it? Do you dwell on the negative?
Or do you fix your attention on Him? Focus on gratitude. I'm pretty sure this is my word of the year. GRATITUDE.
Gratitude because my life is perfect and I have everything I ever wanted? No. Gratitude even in the face of disappointment, regret, loss, and all the other not-so-perfect moments.
"Take your every day, ordinary life- your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life-and place it before God as an offering.
....fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out."
Romans 12 (the message)
