My husband and I often reflect on where we have come from, where we are now and then dream together of what we are going to do next. We like to speak about things that have changed for the better and things that we would still like to see change. The older we get, the more responsibilities that come our way, it seems as though our choices become less and we find ourselves rather restricted due to our commitments to our jobs and our children.
Romans 12 vs 2
“Do not conform any longer 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 used to pray continually that God would show me His Will for my life. His plan for what to study and where to work, His plan for who to marry and His plan for all the big dreams that were in my hearts.
Currently when I read this passage I am still praying that He will show me His Will but it is now in the finer details of my day. I am praying He will show me His will in who I speak to today and what I say. I am praying that He will show me His will just for today. I am praying that He will daily renew my mind and that I will not conform so easily to the pattern of this world.
