Spiritual Coffee: Be Transformed




Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.


Paul does not beat around the bush here, he says it bluntly. "Do not be like the world!" Paul even gives us a solution on how to not be like the world. Paul goes on to says, but be "Transformed" by the RENEWING of our minds.

Remember when you were a sinner? Remember how your mind was conformed to the world thinking? Picture it like this, your home catches on fire and everything in it, is burnt to a crisp! You than, rebuild your home and it is perfect! White walls, clean carpet, and spotless windows.

Now are you going take that burnt furniture and move it into your, new home, of course not! You buy new furniture and replenish your new home.

This is how our life is in Christ. Once God comes in and moves out the old, nasty,  and stain furniture; we are to replace our old ways, and old thinking, with what lines up with the word of God. The only way to do that, is by reading our bibles, praying and having a relationship with Christ. We rebuild our homes with a new foundation, built on Christ!

Note this verse
Luke 11:24-27 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ 25 And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. 26 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”

Notice how the bible tells us, that his house was swept and put in order. When we allow God to come into our lives and clean it up, it is very important to fill ourselves back up with the things of God. We are to guard our heart and mind in Christ; making no room for the devil, by allowing the Holy Spirit to occupy every room in our life!

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the mighty name of Jesus. Lord, I thank You that through Your blood shed on the Cross; I am able to come to You and find a new life in You! For the bible tells me that, old things have past away, behold I am new! Lord, I am grateful, that Your grace does not stop there; but by studying Your word my mind is daily renew, with Your thinking according to 2 Timothy 2:15, which states, Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. In Jesus name I pray, Amen

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
