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.
(Romans 12:1 MSG)
God’s mercies help us to be not only our best
But consecrated or dedicated (held near) to Him
Not just in what we say but in all we do
Even down to breathing the air we breathe.
What our responsibility in all this is
To give or pour out ourselves,
As a person with a sweet heart aroma
When we take in, embrace, God’s will
It gives us life and meaning
And He can create within our souls
A desire to honor His Name,
(His character, mercy, love, holiness
and all that’s included in His Name).
