30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 23

Day 23: Transformed

My transformation in coming to Christ has been a journey full of twist, turns, and struggles. Yet my Father loves me still. Now I’m at a place where He is serious about my future in Him. Your destiny awaits daughter. “Be not conformed to this world” struck such a chord in me when I read it. (“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what isthat good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2) Now is the time to be about my Father’s business. There are people He’s been calling me to cut ties with that I’ve been putting up with “because I’ve known them so long” or “we have working relationships”. There are things He has said to put down or cut back on because they consume time, His time. I’m in a season in my life that is focused on the plan God has for me and His calling on my life. Anyone and anything that doesn’t align with that has to go. If you have known me “x” years and have to ask if I still do that little blog thing, your probably not one of the people aligned to be a part of my destiny circle. If you are constantly putting me down with snide comments that you think I’m not catching, your probably one of those people that need to go.

Too often we get comfortable with things we should not. We let things slide that harm us because we’ve known the person forever and that’s just how they are or we put up with mean or inappropriate behavior because it’s a part of them we’ve just come to accept. No, it’s not okay. If it hurts your feelings, it’s not acceptable. If it’s rude or mean to make themselves feel better, shame on them. That brings me to the second part of this Scripture that struck a chord today, “ye be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Sister/ brother… we can’t renew our mind if it is being fed negativity or anything that comes against the very thing God has transformed you from. This is why God has being telling me, walk away daughter. Renewing our mind is important in this transformation. It should done be daily. Our mind is where the enemy attacks first. It needs to be purged from all that is bad, daily. For me, it’s time to ponder the things in Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” I am so thankful to be transformed. It’s time now to take it further and walk into my destiny, the calling God has for me. Not everyone will follow me on that path there. They aren’t supposed to. Not everyone will even agree with my blog, that’s okay too. “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20 It’s not about me, it’s about who my Father can touch through me so I’m okay with that! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

🧡 Thank You Father God for transforming me! 🧡

1 I 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. 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 12:1-2

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See [thou do it] not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Revelation 19:10

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence. ~ Colossians 1:18

17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten [son], 18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19 Accounting that God [was] able to raise [him] up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. ~ Hebrews 11:17-19

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. ~ Matthew 10: 37-38

And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. ~ Matthew 19:29
