Words that Hit the Mark From Romans 12

In this season of what ifs and waiting, the following verses were just what I needed from Romans 12 in the Message.

"So here's what you do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going to work, and walking around life-and place it before God as an offering.  Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him."
"So since we find ourselves fashioned into all these excellently formed and marvelously functioning parts in Christ's body, let's just go ahead and be what were made to be, without enviously or pridefully comparing ourselves with each other, or trying to be something we aren't."
"Don't burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame.  Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant.  Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder.  Help needy Christians;be inventive in hospitality."
"Don't be stuck up."
I love how God's scripture speaks to each season we are in.  I think for the next few days this will be a chapter I will keep going back to.

Blessings, TJ

PS: What is a scripture passage that has spoken to where you are at right now?  I would love to hear about it in the comments.
