Verses I Love: Philippians 4:8

February graphic

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8

Well, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! There are so many people in my life who I love with all my heart. I hope and pray, however, that the Lord has the first place in my life. Today’s verse has a special meaning that I share in more detail HERE.

God used this verse to bring me out of a difficult period of fear, worry and anxiety. Words cannot express my joy and gratitude for that! I once read this quote by Barbara Sher: “Imaginary obstacles are insurmountable. Real ones aren’t.” I agree! If we are defeated in our minds, then we have already lost the battle. I pray that I can continue to keep my mind on the true things – the things written in God’s Word – and trust Him moment by moment.

With love,

  1. This is such a good challenge and one that I desire to conquer. My mind can so easily get distracted, discouraged, and fearful.
    Love,
    Mother
