“then the LORD GOD formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a LIVING SOUL.” Genesis 2:7
We were made from dust. To dust we will return. But in between those two events – we have an opportunity. We have the opportunity to live it for ourselves, or to love God with it.
Loving God with every breath seems near impossible. Life is a struggle, even though we are blessed. Life is hard work. Seasons in it seem like a blur sometimes. Like when you have multiple children under 5 and you can’t even get the dishes done… let alone do you know the last time you mopped your floor.
The enemy makes sure to keep us focused on anything that would distract us from knowing we are on Holy Ground, even in the most everyday mundane situation. He doesn’t want us to know that
every surface we touch is an altar.
He wants us to keep God in the sanctuary on Sunday and not realize that our body is His temple…
…that even turning our worries over to him and leaving things undone to get enough rest is an offering…
…that eating real food that actually grew out of the ground and intentionally drinking enough water, and exercising is an act of worship…
…that really seeing and loving hurting people is building His Kingdom…
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
In the video below I talk about how this passage has changed how I love the LORD with my life.
This passage really makes it plain. Love the LORD with this life very simply, by making your ordinary life an offering to HIM!
Here’s a link to more about how to take the mundane and grow in loving Him with your LIFE.
Break your life down into the 4 areas in the passage, and get intentional about living the Lord with your

Tell me about the Study!
It’s a four week study
Week 1: Heart
Week 2: Soul
Week 4: Strength
Each week has 5 days of study that you need just 15 minutes to complete
Each day of the study consists of two pages. The first page starts with a short prayer, a short passage of scripture to read, and reflective questions. The second page is a beautiful display of His Word, with a sequence of receiving His Word in love, Giving God love in return through applying His Word to our lives, and making a plan to love others, helping us to be intentional about fulfilling the greatest commandment!
I’ll be blogging through the study right here everyday, so don’t forget to follow the blog to receive emails on weekdays.
I will also be posting one video a week on Sundays to get you motivated and keep you ready to start the next week with some insight and encouragement to help you along the way!!!
