I am running late today; but I’ve had a really good time and I have to scoot soon; going to pick up my GRANDS for a little spell.
So. What shall we share for Wednesday?
Romans 12: (King James Version) 1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. via Ro 12:1-2 – Passage Lookup – King James Version – BibleGateway.com.
Now let me paraphrase it in KT style. Perhaps it will bless you too.
Even though I believe our dear brother Paul penned this letter it is actually the Voice of our Father, hence I am paraphrasing it thus.
I am instructing you, Kathie, (I recommend you read it with YOUR name inserted and not mine) ________________, within My mercies and for your very own good that you make yourself, all of you, – mind, emotions and body – available to Me by an act of your will. This is not unreasonable. I promise you, with Me, you can do it. Moreover it is the ONLY way you are going to be happy here on my earth. Now here is the way it works. Rather than looking at this world’s media to decide how you will think, what you will say, what you will wear, what you will eat, what will entertain you, how you will rear your children, how you will respond and react to your husband, what your moral conduct will be, and for every other question you have, you will come to Me. You will read My Word and I will teach you. And in time your mind will come in line with what you have read, you will believe and I will give you strength. You will come to know with all assurance what is good, what is evil, what is acceptable, what is to be rejected. In summary you will KNOW ME, and what My will is for you, and what My heart is for you and I promise you most of the time you will like it and even when you don’t, you will see the value of it and be content in it until I work out the remaining details for you. It will be the most fun of your earthly life thus far and you will finally be able to get your emotions around the fact that I love you – really, really love you and more than that I actually LIKE you and you bless Me and please Me. Now isn’t that what you really want? I thought so. Me too!
ABBA, You know my heart. You know I am not by any means desiring to put ‘words’ in Your Mouth or change, add to or pervert anything You have spoken. I’m just hoping to convey to my sisters and my brothers that You are AWESOME, that You are RIGHT, that You can be trusted and to say it in such a way that it will hang with them just a little closer than before and will give me some accountability with them and will help them in their own private and public journey here. I pray HOLY SPIRIT it will be so in JESUS name. Amen and amen.
Until then + + +
