Something to think about – guest post by Heather Davis

 

I’m so very proud and happy to welcome to the Song of Virginity blog the first female guest blogger; Heather Davis from Running the race. Personally I couldn’t resist her “about” words, so I’ll let those speak for themselves:

Disciple of Christ, adorer of God, often wayward or distracted student of the Holy Spirit, dedicated wife, homeschool mom of three, and sometime freelance writer and photographer, inquisitive nature lover, hiker, dog owner, and word nerd all bundled into about 5″1′ of physical space

Transformation « discoveringandsharinggrace

 

 

 

 

During my talk with God this morning, I reviewed my personal transformation since accepting Jesus as my Saviour. One reminder God provided is that transformation is not a one-time event. I believe it is daily, even minute by minute, even a second by second process.

“Jesus not only teaches us the Christian life, He creates it in our souls by the action of His Spirit. Our life in Him is not a matter of mere ethical goodwill. It is not a mere moral perfection. It is an entirely new spiritual reality, an inner transformation.”

– Thomas Merton

My prayer for us today is to reflect and meditate on this quote. Let us talk with God about how He wants us to be transformed vs how we think we should be or want to be.

 

Thank you so much for being here!
