Rom.12-2

Have you ever felt like you were going through life on autopilot? There are clear times where you see God working in your life and then there is the every day, ordinary life? Are we making a difference, does anyone notice and what’s the point. That is what Romans 12:2 is for me. It’s a reminder that in everything we…
