Sing Like the Trees
You can no longer hide
Who you were meant to be.
Like the leaves on a tree
You have what the world needs to see.
You have a voice
It’s time to make the choice
To share it so the world can rejoice
And glorify the Creator of the gift you have inside.
Romans 12 The Message (MSG)
Place Your Life Before God
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.
