    12 Ways to be Transformed by the Renewing of Our Mind

    Renewal begins by offering up our whole body, soul, mind and spirit to the Lord. Luke 10:27 tells us, “And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind…” It takes a conscious effort to present oneself to the Lord by disciplining ourselves for godliness.

    BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN SISTER

    by Maya Angelou

    'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
    that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin''
    I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
    I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
    I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
    I'm ad mitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
    My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
    I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
    I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
