The 52 Week Challenge –Week 13


“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will,” Romans 12:2.

I find it immensely interesting that no matter what we need to do, we need to learn to think about it differently. We need to change our hearts and our thoughts, and from that, will spring the desired actions and reactions to situations in life. Any situation…

The 52 Week Challenge –Week 9


Ephesians 4:21-24 (NIV): …when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.
