Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Even before I ever became a Christian, this is something I worked toward everyday of my life. I have always had this mentality to not conform and do better at upholding what I feel is right in my heart. It was a great feeling to become a follower and to find out I was doing what God wanted me to do; I was just doing it without him. After making that connection, it became much easier for me because I found assurance in the Bible.
