Romans 12:2



And 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.
Romans 12:2


I have been pondering what this verse is commanding us to do. Here are some of my thoughts that I wanted to share on Romans 12:2.

This verse seems to mean that we should do God's will and live our lives in the best way we can when serving him. "but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind" As human beings we seem to know in our hearts what is good and what is bad in the way we live our lives. If I thought about stealing something, then I would feel a little tug inside of me, some guilt, and questioning that I know that it is wrong. Some people who except Christ do believe in him but don't follow a Godly life and keep the same routine like any unbeliever. But, if we really love Jesus than we should try to please him every minute of the day. And if we really want to reach the people around us but we act like every body else in the world, they might not care about being saved or their religion. What I am saying is, even if we want to be normal, pleasing God and be different for what he stands for is more important than fitting in and being so called normal in this earthly, anti-God, world.

Do you have anything to add to this verse and topic?

Have a blessed day!!!

10 Standards of Mine

Here are some standards and goals that I am striving to live by.

1. I will strive to wear modest clothing that pleases God.

2. I will not have any physical contact with any man during anytime until I am married and to my husband only.

3. I will save my first kiss for my wedding day to my husband.

4. I will stay mentally pure.

5. I will not get any tattoos.

6. I will not swear. ( The Lord's name or any others that do not give any meaning to sentences "What the -" as an example and other crude language.)

7. I will strive for excellence and not perfection. Only God is perfect and has perfect actions.

8. I will try not to say nasty comments about my friends, family, or any one that I know, gossip included.

9. I will think before I start reading a knew book if it will give me any wisdom or knowledge.

10. I will pray at the very least, once a day. (Not including meals.)

Do you have any standards of yours, that you would like to share? :-)

I hope that you are having a blessed day!

Women of the Home

Titus 2: 1-5

But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged man be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers of home, good , obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.


I love this verse so much. It speaks of all that I want to be. A wife, mother, a keeper at home. A couple people have asked me with this similar question " So, what are you planning to do when you are older? What job do you want to have?" I say "I am going to be a wife and mother." then they say " But what if you don't get a husband? How are you going to make money to support your self, with out a husband. What job will you have then?" I don't usually don't get to answer. Because most of the other people joining into the conversation start talking about there future jobs. But if I really have a desire to be a wife and mother than God will fulfill it. ( With scripture going right a long with my desire it's hard to fear that my desire and prayer will not be answered.) I should be preparing myself and equiping myself with such tools for caring for a home and caring for my children.God will take care of me through every thing. I don't need to worry about food, clothing, shelter, or money. (Matthew 6:26) It feels as if every one around us expects women to be prepared to not get married. Should we be focusing on training to be a wife and mother or building a career? Well, the Botkin sisters explain it well.


Here are two pages of the "Some Much More" book. I highly recommend this book! :)

Some Much more
by Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin

(These are pages 116 and 117 of the book.)

"According to scripture, is chasing a career outside the home a sin?
Because only God can dictate what sin is, and because sin is a very serious thing, we must be very cautious about what we label as sin. Careerism may not technically be a sin in theological terms, but doing one's best to get out from under God's order for families and society may be a sinful action done with sinful motives. It may not be " want of conformity to the law of God," but it does appear to be want of conformity to His design for civil society.

Let's look at the Titus 2 command again. As we pointed out before, the original Greek for "workers at home" is oikouros, which literally means " guard or watcher of the home." Jennie Chancey points out, " A woman cannot both ' keep at home' ( or guard the house') and 'keep' in a separate work place...A simple glance at the domain which the wife is commanded to oversee and rule -yes, rule-should demonstrate beyond a doubt that it is not possible to be an effective, capable keeper at home while pursuing another ( outside) occupation."

This does not mean that women should be kept prisoners in their homes. It means the women should be the guard, protectors, and Keepers of their Homes. God did not create the home to be a " house" or cage for women, or a place to keep the women because they weren't allowed to be anywhere else. But devoting herself to any other sphere would be waste of her time and her life and would keep her from realizing her full potential. The home is the best workplace for her abilities. The home is where she can give the most glory to God, because she is embracing His wonderful design for women. The work she will do as a keeper-at-home, when understood biblically, is work only a woman can do, and it is the most worthy work she can aspire to. And though her work does not take place in the gates, it is praised in the gates, as proverbs 31:31 tells us :" Give her the fruit of her hands, and her works will praise her in the gates."






God Bless you all and I hope that you are having a wonderful day! ♥
