Join host Janet Berrong as she shares about being renewed and living out your God-given purpose.
Welcome to Celebrating God's Grace, a Women World Leaders podcast. I'm your host, Janet Berrong. It's an honor for me to be back with you today sharing health, beauty and Jesus. Thank you for joining as we celebrate God's grace in our lives, in this ministry, and in the world. Please join us every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for our podcast, Monday with Empowering Lives with Purpose. Wednesday's the biblical teaching arm of Walking in the Word, and Friday with Celebrating God's Grace. As we here at Women World Leaders gear up for our in person event titled Renew. Just the word renew makes me happy. I think of it as a fresh start. So today I want to talk about being renewed and living out our God given purpose. When we say renew, it means to replace. So renewing our mind means replacing the old way of thinking with a new way. So when you hear renew your mind with the Word of God, it means to replace the old way of thinking with that the Bible says in Romans 12:2 says, "Don't copy the behavior and the customs of this world. But let God transform you into a new person. By changing the way you think. Then you can learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." I feel this is a great topic and timing for me. It's my birthday month. And it's always a good time for me to evaluate and reflect on life. It might be a good time for you to if you needed to be renewed. I or encourage you today to spend quality time with Jesus. Let Him renew your hearts and minds with his word. A dear loved one reminded me that we will never be as young as we are right now. That time is a valuable commodity that you'll never get back. And to spend it wisely. Wow, how true that is. When you think of it that way. It really makes us think about our purpose and what really matters in life. Every single one of us has a purpose to fulfill in life, something unique that we can only we can accomplish. Sometimes that we if we use our talents and God given gifts to fulfill it will make this world a better place. It is our mark to leave upon this earth in our legacy to live by leave behind for those who follow us. And it is up to us to figure out what the purpose is. The Bible tells us in Psalms 139:13 through 16 that God created in innermost being he knit us together in our mother's womb. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. His works are wonderful. And all the days ordained for us were written in his book before one of them came to be also in Ephesians 2:10 tells us we are God's handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. The fact that we are breathing and living on this planet tells us that we have a purpose. The Lord has prepared us in advance to do good works. He is not done with you yet if you're still alive. We have been made with a purpose and each one of us have a reason for living. It is our ultimate purpose to bring Him glory with various aspects of our life. Following Christ is the greatest adventure that each one of us will ever have in it's an adventure of life's purpose. The question is, in what way and through what location? Will you live your purpose? Let us pray. Father, we thank you for your love, grace and mercy that you called us to live a full and purposeful life. I pray for everyone listening, that they will have the peace that only you give me your Holy Spirit fall on them today in a special way. In Jesus name I pray, amen. God bless you. Until next time, dear sisters
