Renewing of your mind….

Romans 12:2 (NIV) 2 Do not conform 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.

 

With all the pains and trials that life itself put us through, it’s good to know that we can stop and talk to God and ask him for help… I did on last night through great physical pain, as I continue to struggle over 20 years with a rare muscle disease that causes my mind to go haywire from time to time…  Nevertheless, I ask God as I always do before I lay my head down to sleep to forgive me if I’ve done or said anything wrong or offended anyone…. In his word, it says that he is faithful and just to forgive us from all unrighteousness… We just have to stop and realize that there is no problem to big or to small for God to handle.    God can handle anything that we throw his way.   I often say that I’m so glad that God is not like man, he listens, he knows all, and he cares for me…  In I Peter 5:7 it says to Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you….  I’m certain that he does, and continue to go back to drawing board daily to deal with the trial of life that present themselves sweet on some days and other days, I survive..  Those are the days that I want to learn to lean to God even more when it seems like the pain is to hard to bear…

I know I’m not the only one the world that deal with continues medical issues, but I do know that the God whom I serves continues to heal me and he looks beyond everyone one of my little faults and continue to recognize my needs which are far greater than any problem that I can present to God…   God is and he is a problem solver, and he always give solutions to our every need…

Keep a sister in prayer as  I continue to press on this journey called life…   Love everyday because everydaywith Jesus is sweeter than the day before….

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
