Place Your Life Before God

Place Your Life Before God

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)

Me

So sometimes I do things out of order… This is a perfect example. This post was supposed to be done when I first enrolled in Blogging University. I put it on my to-do list and forgot about it. I am after all, a very busy guy. I will change the settings when I go to publish it and no one will ever know… well except whoever read it.

So I am choosing to blog for several reason. The most important is that I feel led by the Holy Spirit to do this.

I have been spending a lot of time praying and asking God for direction. For some reason, and I’m sure it’s for my own good, He has not given me a road map to my future. I believe that He is growing my faith. All I know is that when I feel led to do something and I do it, everything works out.

Looking at the condition of our world today it’s time to try to make a difference. Will I? Well, that’s up to God.

I believe the world has been deceiving people into chasing after a way of life and a form of “success” that isn’t real. I have broken free from that and I want to show you how.

The life I am now creating is based on Romans 12:1-2 which says: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 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.”

I am no longer conforming… I am living. I believe my life is an ongoing, active experiment to show others a better way to live based on trusting God and living a self sufficient, self sustaining lifestyle.

In, these last days before Jesus returns, I would like to do my best to live in a way that honors Him.

I hope that makes sense… It does to me.

God Bless,
