how Romans 12:12 changed my life

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

At the beginning of the year, I chose Romans 12:12 as my verse for the year. To lean on. Te remind me. To teach me. It's really amazing what I've learned and how things have changed in 6 months. I started the year in a rut. Disappointed and discouraged. I turned to the word.

I dug in and let it transform my life.

And boy did it do that.

I trusted Him with our plans and leaned into His truth. I'm gonna let you in on a little secret of what  happened next....

It worked.

I was overcome with peace. And joy.

In January, It was hard for me to read this verse. I didn't feel joy. Patience wasn't even an option, and prayer? Whoa.

But now? I live and breathe this verse. I'm joyful in hope. I'm patient in affliction. And you better believe I'm faithful in prayer.

How are YOU letting the word transform your life??
