Living Sacrifice

Giving our thoughts to God. Every moment. While doing the dishes, laundry, sipping coffee. Thinking on righteousness. Rejecting the inferior thoughts that wander dangerous paths.

The Well Within

This morning I imagined stepping into the River of Life that flows from the throne of my Heavenly Father. I pictured my foot dipping into the water. I thought how wonderful it would be if we could step into that river today, and be free from these niggling things of earth. Cleansed. Unhindered.
