Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,
but let God transform you into a
by changing the way you think.
Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
Romans 12:2 NLT
Happy NEW Year!
There is no better way to start a NEW Year than by believing God wants to do NEW things in your life. Is this biblical? YES! Yesterday we looked at Isaiah 43 and remembered Who God is… Today, we look at who YOU are in this NEW life Jesus has given you, continuing to transform you through HIS infinite grace. This NEW year you can continue to be transformed by Grace Himself through His living word.
Challenge: Take at least 15 minutes today, asking the Lord to give you verses from His Word to transform the way you think. Google verses that relate to the struggles you are facing if you don’t know the scripture references. Write them down, post them where you will see them frequently. Screenshot them on your phone. Commit to thinking on them and praying them over yourself and loved ones.
JESUS is the WORD made flesh. Inviting more of the Word into your life and mind is inviting Him there as well. He loves you so much and wants to continue to transform your heart to know Him more, love Him more, and love others more.
Take it another step! Google free printables for your verses and put them in frames in your home for the NEW year. Ask God to saturate your life, mind, and heart with NEWNESS through His living, active word. Nothing will transform you from the inside out like He can!
Narrow your focus: Select one verse for each of these areas that pertain to your life:
* Your relationship with Jesus
* Your marriage
* Your mothering
* Your home
Post them (in real life surrounding you)
Pray them Speak them Believe them!
“Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection.” Proverbs 30:5
I’d love to hear your verses!
Praying for you!

New Year Bible Challenge
I’ll be honest, I get sidetracked in life, how about you, friend? A few years ago, I was tired of spinning on a hamster wheel, feeling like I was making no progress in areas of my life. I prayed and God told me that this was not the way He desired for me to live. He showed me through His word that I AM His daughter, and that there is a better way. A refocused, narrower way. We can ask God to make our vision clearer for our lives, more effective to know Him better and see Him more clearly right where we are. To have more peace and fulfillment in our relationship with Him, our marriages, our mothering, and our homes. He will flood those areas of our lives with new clarity and breath and life and beauty when we ask Him and meditate on His Word towards those areas in our lives. His Word brings beauty to the most mundane parts of our lives! By the end of January, if you join us, you will be folding laundry, or reading to your children, or having a conversation with a friend, realizing you are standing on Holy Ground with Jesus, doing exactly what He created you to do, communing with Him and doing good work for His glory, right where He has placed you!
