“Do not conform any longer to the patterns 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 12:2
^ See those words up there? Yeah, the purple ones. Those words make up my life verse – what I live by. It basically means not to let yourself get caught up in what everyone else is doing – don’t lose sight of Who you serve by making sure you’re popular or by doing things that wouldn’t please God. Instead of giving yourself to the world, give yourself to God. Let Him clean out every wrong thought or action, and let Him fill you up with His love and a passion for following Him. After you do this, you’ll be able to know exactly what He wants you to do. And guaranteed, His plans for you are awesome! He knows exactly what you need!
Today, as I was considering what to add to my blog, a thought occurred to me: Oftentimes, we get so caught up in MAKING a difference, that we forget we are supposed to BE a difference. In other words, before we can go out and change the WORLD, we should focus on letting God change US. Then, and only then, can we accomplish great things through the power of God. Today it hit me: My new purpose is to BE a difference. Will you join me?
