Transfigure (form)

Matthew 17:2 "And he was transfigured before them. And his face did shine as the sun: and his garments became white as snow."

I thought this verse was interesting, because I found out this morning that transfigure means the same thing as transform, essentially. In Romans 12:2 it says for us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. THEN we will be able to test and approve the will of God. This must mean our minds being blown.. Not like a change of perspective.. The beautiful thing about this I am currently learning, is that we have a complete lack in our own selves of ever making it happen on our own. We are helpless without Him. When we are weak, He is truly made strong. We can feel like were at the most busy, weak, vulnerable, impossible place in life, and we can come to Him in our weakness and He will be strong. And that is encouraging, because I know that I royally suck at trying to do it my way. So have your way in my life in this today, God. Love you all, have a wonderful day.
