Romans 12:2

Jon’s supposed to do another four weeks of physical therapy, but he got a good report from his doctor. He goes back there in four weeks, also. He did have to cut back a little bit on the intensity of his routine, but had some other restrictions lifted. The cutting back helped decrease the swelling. Today he didn’t have to go to work and went to help on the farm instead. That made him feel MUCH better!!
Last night we got to visit with our friends who are visiting from New Jersey. Tom and Joanne are doing great and headed back home today. It was so good to see them again!!

Thought for the day

This was the verse on my flip calendar yesterday
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect His will really is.” Romans 12:2 (NLT)
I love that version of this verse. “let God transform you into a new person by changing the WAY YOU THINK.” We get focused on changing our behaviors and don’t understand why we keep hitting a wall. It’s our thinking that we have to let God change. We are to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. That means that must take our thoughts and examine them before God to see if they line up with His word…the Truth. If not, it’s the thought that must change…we must let God have His way, and when we surrender to His will we will find that it is good , pleasing, and perfect. But we won’t arrive at that end until we let Him have His way in our thoughts. It’s all about surrender…again!!

  1. Hi! Just found the card with your website in my Bible! Women's group was just awesome last night! It was so cool how Jesus laid that on your heart *before* the women's group and it applied so perfectly to what we ended up talking about! I so appreciate your participation in this group! It's just a blessing to all of us!!


  2. It has been a real answer to the desire of my heart to be a part of this group. I'm learning so much about God's heart and grace through knowing all of you. He's SO GOOD!!!
