Reading Romans: TWO METAPHORS OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE . Do you like metaphors? I love them! (Analogies too). I find they help so much in trying to understand things - especially God-related things. . So next time my sinful nature comes a knocking.... I’ll say, . 1. “Go away, I’m not your slave anymore. You don’t get to tell me what to do.” . 2. “Sorry, I’m taken - I belong to Jesus”. . #shmooreadsromans #biblejournaling #bibleverse #note #notes #romans

one thing I love a whole lot is meeting people. another thing I love even more is the purpose or impact that can come from the tiniest interaction or conversation with someone. I love how God is in the smallest details of our lives and how he intertwines our stories by bringing us to meet and connect with others in bigger ways that we even comprehend in that initial moment. x I’ve met so many people while traveling & even since I’ve been back in austin over the last few months — some that I haven’t talked to since and may never talk to again. but some have turned into friends and meaningful, encouraging friendships that I would have never imagined in that very moment weeks, months or even years ago. don’t limit God to a moment. I think when we set our eyes on Jesus & loving others the way He does, there can be purpose in that every tiny moment because even when we don’t have eternity on our mind, He ALWAYS does.

What's your favorite color page? I know you know what mine is (💚+ 💙) I'm making a kit for the LDS Doctrinal Mastery (used to be scripture mastery) for the seminary program and anyone else who wants to study. So this could be used for females and males. What's a better idea? All 100 verses the same color and people get to pick which color they prefer OR each book of scripture is a different color (for example: OT=gray; NT=mint/teal; BOM=pink; D&C=gold). Personally I like the second choice but not sure male seminary students would like having pink stickers all over their Book of Mormon. Maybe I could do navy instead....🤔 . . #wor#worthywrittenwords #scripturemastery #lds#ldsscripturemastery #doctrinalmastery #ldsdoctrinalmastery #seminary #ldsseminary #lds #ldsscripturejournaling #ldsscriptures #scriptures #scripturejournaling #bible #biblejournaling #biblestudy #scripturestudy #inspiredbythescriptures #scripturekit #scripturekits #biblekit #ldsjournalingkit #biblejournalingkit #journalingkit #ldskit #ldsstudy #bookofmormonstudy #worthywrittenwords #selftaughtgraphicdesigner #inkscape

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?

I flipped my Bible open and asked for some guidance, to help me with my battle against my thoughts about my body and this life, and here is what scripture was shared with me ... . . . “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1-6, 8‬ ‭NLT‬‬ . . . 📸@cassie_mjeans
